At Woden Primary School we recognise the importance of Children’s mental health and wellbeing as it enables our children to develop knowledge, skills, and attributes they need to manage their lives, both in the present and in the future. Being mentally healthy during childhood means reaching developmental and emotional milestones and learning healthy social skills and how to cope when there are problems. Mentally healthy children have a positive quality of life and can function well at home, in school, and in their communities.
There are eleven sessions we deliver to our children that are designed to progress in sequence from September to July. Each lesson is designed to enhance children’s emotional and mental health. Every topic contributes to at least one of these aspects of children’s development.
