Four well-being programs are offered

Woy Woy Public School is offering four well-being programs this term: Top Blokes, Shine, Stronger Braver Wiser and Mentoring through Sport.

Assistant principal Ms Michelle Williams said: "We have implemented these programs to ensure our students are well equipped to deal with the challenges life can sometimes throw at us.

"Student resilience and wellbeing are essential for both academic and social development, and are optimised by safe, supportive and respectful learning environments."

Ms Williams said the Top Blokes program had commenced for selected Stage 3 boys and was designed to provide a social education program for boys aged between 10 to13.

The attending students would participate in an eight-week program to develop key social and decision-making skills.

School chaplain Ms Aimee Campbell would start the Shine mentoring program for Stage 3 girls.

This program was designed to offer girls an opportunity to develop a strong sense of personal identity, confidence and hope.

Mr Grant Hickman of Focus Body and Soul would deliver Stronger Braver Wiser to participating students from Kindergarten through to Year 6.

This program focuses on developing skills to make positive choices and self-discipline.

The Mentoring through Sports program is open to Stage 2 students and would see students work in small groups with a teacher-mentor.

Framed through team sport, participating students would use sport to provide a context to develop strong relationships and develop leadership skills in students.

Ms Williams said together these programs addressed many of the emerging social and emotional issues that children face.

Parents and carers who would like more information about any of these programs should contact Ms Williams through the school.
