Student support and wellbeing

Mrs Sharon Jenness is our Head Teacher Wellbeing. Her role is to enhance the social and emotional wellbeing of students to improve learning outcomes.

Her specific focus is on empowering students to thrive within the school community by building pro-social behaviours, resilience, coping skills, responsible digital citizenship and positive relationships. This involves assisting students to meet their social, emotional and material needs through collaborative and purposeful efforts to increase competence, problem solving and coping abilities.

Mrs Jenness provides both whole school wellbeing initiatives and targeted strengths based supports for students requiring personalised assistance. She also connects students and their families with support networks both within the school and the wider community.
