Every year we create whole school initiatives, such as International Women's Week and Mental Health Week, which include interactive workshops and activities that educate students and promote healthy conversations.

Our students are also provided with a variety of leadership opportunities that actively promote wellbeing in the school. These include: Student Representative Council, Peer Support leaders, student fundraising committees and the Aboriginal Awareness committee.
