The Student Wellbeing Vision outlines how the College actively promotes Wellbeing to improve learning and life outcomes for our students. The Vision is the result of extensive collaboration between staff and students and aims to help every student realise their unique potential through physical, mental, emotional and spiritual development.
Wellbeing and academic outcomes are inextricably linked. Our Student Wellbeing Vision and Learning and Teaching Vision are complementary documents. Our approach to wellbeing and learning enables us to realise one’s unique potential through physical, mental, emotional and spiritual development.
The document identifies four key elements of wellbeing – Pastoral Care, Community Engagement, Child Safety, and Student Voice and Agency. Each of these areas outlines how we Enable, Learn, Engage, and Connect with these elements through structures, policies and education.
The Wellbeing Vision is inspired by ‘Horizons of Hope’ and ‘Excel – Wellbeing for learning’ and identifies four key elements – Pastoral Care, Community Engagement, Child Safety and Student Voice and Agency. Using language common to these documents, we help our students to ‘Enable, Connect, Engage and Learn’ with their individual wellbeing. At John Paul College we have a “commitment to ensure every member of our community is empowered to achieve success, act with integrity and contribute to the common good – Christian discipleship for a just world.”
By embedding these four elements and explicitly teaching wellbeing we realise the mission of our College.
