WELLBEING AT LE FEVRE HIGH SCHOOL
At Le Fevre High School we understand the importance of wellbeing and how wellbeing positively influence the learning outcomes for our students.
The wellbeing of a young person encompasses more than just physical health; it is a combination of emotional, social and mental health. By connecting with students, parents and caregivers this will enable our young people to grow into happy, respectful and successful members of the community.
Le Fevre High School is also a Resilience Project School, we deliver The Resilience Project as part of our Pastoral Care Program in Care Group lessons. The Resilience Project delivers emotionally engaging programs, providing practical, evidence-based mental health strategies to build resilience and happiness.
