Well-being Working group

Our Mission

The Well-being Working group is a sub-committee of the CCPS P&C.

Our current members come from the parent school community, teaching staff at CCPS and a professional counsellor trained in resilience programs for children.

Our Purpose

Our purpose is to support the school and engage the community in matters involving well-being. We have the support of the CCPS principal, school executives, staff and the P&C.

The well-being of students and staff at CCPS is critical to maintain an engaging and successful learning environment for all.

‘Well-being’ encompasses many elements (cognitive, emotional, social, physical and mindfulness) and focuses on positive outcomes.

The intent of a Well-being Forum is to assist the school in informing our community about the school’s well-being policies and practices, answer general questions and engage attendees in a constructive discussion about the school’s plans on this priority. Current aspects include: managing positive friendships, resilience, being safe, being respectful and responsible.

The Well-being Forum is not a place to raise personal concerns; these should always be addressed in private discussions.

Our Goals

 To enable our children to be happy, healthy, engaged and successful students.
 To enhance a cooperative partnership between home and school in developing student well-being.
 To address well-being in all forms to the benefit of staff, parents and most importantly, the children.

Meetings

A Well-being Forum will run each term, starting in term 1 2018. The focus for each forum can change, allowing us to build an even stronger partnership and an understanding of how children’s well-being is supported at school. By understanding the language used at school, we can build a consistent approach for children both at school and at home (through curriculum, supplementary programs and support from the school, parents and community).

The Well-being Working Group will collaborate with the school in selecting forum topics, sourcing external experts to attend our forums, be advised of how well-being is measured at school, and celebrate with the whole school community their efforts and successes as our children prosper and thrive.
