Student Wellbeing

Student well being is a strong focus at Salisbury East High School and is integral to the learning process.

At SEHS we believe learners will engage more readily with learning when in an optimum state of wellbeing.

Staff have been involved in the Geelong Grammar School 'Discovering Positive Education' program, which has led to a series of professional development activities for all SEHS teachers, centred around the character strengths, growth mindset and mindfulness.

Positive Education is based around the science of Martin Seligman’s Positive Psychology and its five pillars, known as PERMA: Positive Emotion, Engagement, Relationships, Meaning and Accomplishment.

Each of these elements is essential to our well-being and satisfaction with life. Together, they form the solid foundation upon which we can build a happy and flourishing life.

Staff at SEHS embrace the principles of positive education, with many implementing meditation, character strengths and growth mindset strategies into their classrooms.

Plans to focus on, and further develop, the PERMA principles are reflected in our school's Site Priority: 'Supporting our community to flourish'.

Students are also supported with a variety of alternative programs to assist them in modifying their behaviours, making appropriate choices and accessing support.
