The wellbeing team at Fountain Gate Secondary College

Student wellbeing and student learning are intricately linked. This connection combined with the complexity and challenge of societal change means that student wellbeing continues to be an essential priority for Fountain Gate Secondary College
Student wellbeing develops when:
A positive sense of identity is enhanced by students being valued and respected as learners, by encouraging self understanding and self direction and by focusing on the development of the whole person.
Supportive relationships develop when students feel listened to and acknowledged as individuals and when there is a fundamental belief in the importance of respect for self and respect for others.
It is important to provide an environment in which students feel safe and secure and which also acknowledges the unique nature of each individual and their stage of development. This involves flexibility in programs and pathways within a context of clear expectations and boundaries. A school community is built on clear values and aspirations and supportive relationships. When students feel strongly connected to their school community their academic, social and personal development flourishes and they are able to develop the confidence, optimism and skills required to take their places in the world.
