Student wellbeing is an integral part of learning. A person’s emotional, social, mental and physical wellbeing is fundamental to development. When we are happy, healthy and well-adjusted we are able to learn more effectively and deal with life’s challenge

At the University High School we have programs that help develop resilience, educate about mind-body health and support students and families during difficult times. Many of these programs are integrated into the everyday curriculum at school. We also have programs that are pro-active in developing skills for students, and various parent evenings throughout the year. The University High School Framework for Wellbeing gives an overview of this.

It is important when talking about wellbeing that we remember it is not always about “fixing” something that is wrong. It’s about developing knowledge and happiness that enables us to deal with the challenges that we face. The aim is to lead an amazing life, not one that just gets us through. If things to go a little awry, it is then important to seek out the support networks that are available to us. Most importantly, our friends and family are great support networks. Developing resilience in teenagers is integral to our wellbeing at University High School.

Please take the time to explore the UHS Wellbeing Page – there are links to informative factsheets and articles that you may find very interesting as well as information about programs within our community. If you have some information that you think may be valuable to this page we’d love to read about it.
