Jamison High School has adopted the Mind Matters program as part of our commitment to student welfare and improving outcomes for all our students. Mind Matters is an Australian Government program with voluntary take-up offered to schools. Under the umbrella of Mind Matters, Jamison High School has developed U Matters – Building positive Relationships. Focusing on mental health in schools makes sense! It’s not just about helping students who are having specific mental health concerns; it is about helping all students to achieve their best.
Some of the benefits of focusing on mental health are:
- Sense of connectedness
- academic success
- Social Development
- Personal resilience
- Capacity to work with others and in the workplace
Mentoring occurs weekly. Students will work with a teacher on aspects of education involving resilience, time management, decision making as well as mental health issues and personal well-being. The success of this program will ensure Jamison High School maintains its place as a premier welfare school and students are more likely to success as their needs are understood, ensuring equitable learning outcomes for every student.
