Wellbeing for schools is a contemporary strengths-based approach so that every student in NSW public schools can connect, succeed and thrive at school and beyond.
In keeping with the philosophy ‘It takes a village to raise a child’, students of Jamison HS will be actively connected to their learning, encouraged to build positive and respectful relationships and experience a sense of belonging to their school and community.
Student resilience and wellbeing are essential for both academic and social development and this is optimised by the provision of safe, supportive and respectful learning environments.
Schools share this responsibility with the whole community.
Not only do confident, resilient children with a capacity for emotional intelligence perform better academically, these skills can also contribute to the creation of strong social bonds and supportive communities, and the maintenance of healthy relationships and responsible lifestyles.
Jamison HS has whole school Wellbeing programs embedded into the fabric of the school, such as Umatter, Learning Conferences, Crossroads, and Positive Behaviour for Learning. In addition, targeted programs are offered, as well individualised interventions to support students in all areas of development.
The Wellbeing Team is made up:
- Head Teacher Administration
- Head Teacher Welfare
- Year Advisors
- Learning and Support Teachers (LaST)
- Students Learning and Support Officers (SLSO)
- School Counsellors
- Student Support Officer (SSO)
- Careers Advisor
- Transition Coordinator
Students are also provided with leadership opportunities to promote student wellbeing. These roles include, but are not limited to the School leadership Team, Peer Support leaders, PBL Leaders, Aboriginal Leadership Team and Student Representative Council.
