Wellbeing at Mount Primary School
Welcome to the mental health and wellbeing section of the school website. At Mount Primary School we value wellbeing and now, more than ever we need to prioritise supporting young people to understand what wellbeing is and how to develop positive mental health. Therefore, we teach wellbeing explicitly through mindfulness activities as well as through the development of a variety of tools to allow children to understand and develop their own mental health. Mental health goes hand-in-hand with physical health and we encourage the children to look after both their bodies and their minds.
We also value the wellbeing of our families and communities. Therefore, the website is split into separate pages so that support can be offered to families, parents and carers as well as to students. Tools and resources will be uploaded to the ‘families’ section of the website to support you during these very difficult times and beyond. Several parents have volunteered to be mental health and wellbeing ambassadors and we had already held a coffee morning to hear what you would like to see at Mount Primary School to support mental health and wellbeing in the community. During the current situation, we are not able to have face-to-face meetings, but we welcome your feedback and will respond to any issues or concerns you may have.
