Wellbeing Centre

Introducing the Wellbeing Centre

2019 marked the beginning of the St Mary's College Wellbeing Centre. A space where students can access our school counselling services as well as a sensory/breakout space.

At St Mary's College, we aim to:

  • Provide safe environments where all students can learn, grow and flourish
  • Create a whole school environment for positive relationships, learning and wellbeing
  • Educate students in each of the social and emotional learning competencies: self-awareness, social awareness, self-management, relationship skills, responsible decision making
  • Ensure that our approach to wellbeing expresses our Catholic Dominican ethos in its fullness, embracing our values of truth, justice and community
  • Proactively support every student's wellbeing so that they can engage in learning

What is wellbeing?

Wellbeing is a state in which every individual realises their potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully and can contribute to the community. (WHO, 2014)
