Student Wellbeing is a priority at Reidy Park Primary School. Reidy Park Primary School’s commitment to Student Wellbeing is driven by research which clearly shows that children who are mentally healthy are better able to meet life’s challenges. They are also better learners and have stronger relationships.
A whole school wellbeing program, Play is the Way, is actively taught in each class. Play is the Way is a practical methodology for teaching social and emotional skills using guided play, classroom activities and an empowering language.
“The Huddle” has been established to support students who experience difficulties entering or being in classrooms for a range of reasons. This area is managed by our Deputy Principal, who has a counselling focus, our Christian Pastoral Support Worker and our SSOs who work with students with learning issues.
