Our school councillors have taken on a new and important role this year as wellbeing ambassadors. Their roles and responsibilities include:

  • Being a friendly and approachable person
  • Listening to and supporting others
  • Promoting the 5 ways to wellbeing (Connect, Take Notice, Give, Keep Learning and Be Active)
  • Leading playground games that support wellbeing, teamwork and friendship
  • Encouraging and monitoring engagement with the wellbeing homework activities
  • Sharing information about wellbeing through the school council magazine
