Student wellbeing is essential for learning

At Ocean View College, we have three dedicated student wellbeing leader roles; Junior, Middle and Senior. Our wellbeing leaders work in partnership with school staff, parent/caregivers and outside agencies to promote and safeguard student wellbeing and optimise learning.

Student wellbeing leaders ensure the safety of students and protection of their rights, advocating for students through promoting student leadership. They evaluate and facilitate access to relevant programs, initiatives and services for staff and students, offering course and career guidance in senior years. They provide support to help students build resilience and manage their own personal issues and relationships. Case by case, they respond to crisis situations when necessary and refer students to student support services and therapeutic services. Services provided by student wellbeing leaders follow a preventative and developmental model of counselling that encourages attendance, positive engagement, behaviour and learning at school.

Wellbeing and positive mental health is fostered in our students through not only our supportive school community, but also embedded through the innovative curriculum taught.
