Student Wellbeing and Leadership
At Seaford Rise, wellbeing is an essential component of daily life and it is the responsibility of the whole school community. The school adopts a proactive approach that teaches the ‘Three Wave Model’ that teaches and supports student wellbeing by building their capacity in becoming resilient young people.
The school has a whole of school approach through the teaching of social and emotional programs with the central programs being ‘What’s the Buzz’ (Reception -2) and Bounce Back (Years 3-7). These programs are supported by the school’s ‘Procedure for Student Behaviour’ to ensure good order including respect is maintained within and beyond the classroom.
Students from Years 3-7 are encouraged to apply for formal leadership positions each year for the Student Representative Council or to lead their sport house as a House Captain. Less formal leadership opportunities are afforded to students such as recycling leaders, sport equipment monitors and school garden attendants. Additionally, all students are involved in a ‘buddy classroom’ program.
