STUDENT WELLBEING

ACTING WELLBEING LEADER:
Mr Marc Johnson   (Students call me Mr Johnson)

 

STUDENT WELLBEING

East Torrens Primary School values student wellbeing and building strong links within our school community based around our school values of
Respect, Empathy, Excellence and Community.

 

There is a strong emphasis placed on 'positive reinforcement' and assisting students to understand and accept responsibility for their own actions and choices. Restorative practices are used across the school.

"Wellbeing is central to learning and
learning contributes to wellbeing".
 
We are committed to supporting the development and promotion of
wellbeing for all our students in a caring, encouraging and nuturing environment.
 
Teachers and Staff contribute to the wellbeing of students through the
quality of relationships that are built. Relationships built on respect contribute significantly to student participation, attendance and learning.
 
Students and Parents/Caregivers are encouraged to discuss any issues that affect student learning with their child's class teacher.
 
Our fulltime Student Wellbeing Leader supports students and monitors their wellbeing and attendance.

 

   

STUDENT VOICE

Student voice is an important part of our school culture.
 
The school has a strong Student Representative Council (SRC) which provides a vital forum for student voice and decision making about their school.
 
SRC representatives are voted by their peers to represent their class and pass on issues raised at regular classroom meetings.
 
SRC initiated Buddy Bench
'The video on the home page explains the purpose of the buddy bench.'

 

SCHOOL CROSSING MONITORS

East Torrens students promote student safety by performing duties
as School Crossing Monitors.
 
Monitors are legally required to be at least 10 years of age and be trained
and authorised by South Australian Police (SAPOL).
This training occurs during Term 1 every year.
