STUDENT SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL WELLBEING
Robina State School implements a whole-school approach to enhancing learning and wellbeing for all students, focusing on social and emotional learning. This program provides opportunities for students to develop a positive sense of identity and learn the skills necessary to become active and responsible citizens. These skills are known as the
5 Keys to School Success and include:
Organisation, Confidence, Persistence, Getting Along and Resilience.
Children who have developed social and emotional skills ﬁnd it easier to manage themselves, relate to others, resolve conﬂict, and feel positive about themselves and the world around them.
At Robina State School a specialist teacher conducts fortnightly Social Emotional (SEL) lessons, derived from the
You Can Do It! Program, to all classes P-6. These lessons have a highly positive effect on our school culture, by educating children to understand themselves and others, and to be accepting of differences. This results in an improvement in student motivation, achievement and wellbeing.
Our school Chaplain also assists students in all aspects of wellbeing. Providing assistance to children who may be suffering from anxiety, behavioural concerns, past/current grief/trauma, and social/emotional issues. A School Chaplain is a safe person for young people to connect with at school and provides a listening ear, caring presence, and a message of hope. Chaplains run positive, fun activities for students and assist in fostering supportive, caring school communities.
