WRAP Program

Our Reception to Year 12 WRAP program explicitly teaches social and emotional wellbeing. It has a solid focus on teaching personal and social capabilities, safety, social skills, empathy and building respectful relationships with others. WRAP covers complex topics in an age-appropriate way through weekly lessons.  

Our program is enriched by a strong research base about the developmental needs of young women. Parent sessions and resources support families to reinforce this learning at home. 

  • WRAP happens weekly on Wednesday afternoons from Reception to Year 12. 
  • WRAP is designed to meet the needs of girls and young women in a complex and changing world. 
  • WRAP is evidence informed, using data from our students to review and shape the program. 
  • WRAP is shaped by research. Firstly, about the skills young women need to navigate their world. Secondly, by contemporary wellbeing literature.  
  • WRAP nurtures and develops social and emotional wellbeing.  
  • WRAP strengthens our student’s capacity for learning in all areas.
