Health and Wellbeing

The Health and Well-being Area of Learning and Experience (Area) provides a holistic structure for understanding health and well-being. It is concerned with developing the capacity of learners to navigate life's opportunities and challenges. The fundamental components of this Area are physical health and development, mental health, and emotional and social well-being. It will support our learners to understand and appreciate how the different components of health and well-being are interconnected. We teach our learners to recognise that good health and well-being are important to enable successful learning. At St. Mary’s we aim to foster a whole-school approach that enables health and well-being to permeate all aspects of school life.
