At EJEHS, students are supported with their wellbeing in a number of ways. Students each have a Career Pathways Program (CPP) teacher to monitor and support their career pathway; providing intervention and parent engagement where necessary. Within the CPP program, there are scheduled activities and learning that support and educate students about their wellbeing and protective strategies through the delivery of the Child Protection Curriculum.
For further individualised support, they are able to speak to a member of the Wellbeing Team.
An appointment can be made to speak to a member of the Wellbeing team through Student Services (SS).
The Student Wellbeing Team also manages The Crib, which is a fun and safe inside environment for students to ‘hang out’ during recess and lunch where they can make toasties, tea, coffee and milo. A microwave is also available for students to heat their own food. Students gather to meet friends, watch DVDs, listen to music, play games and have an informal chat to a member of the Wellbeing Team.
The Interoception Room is another safe space provided by the wellbeing team. Here students learn about self-regulation, emotional awareness and affective calming strategies. The Interoception Room provides activities for the students to complete such as stretching exercises, breathing activities and muscle activities. We also have many sensory items for students to utilise such as a sequin wall, weighted blanket, lava lamp, exercise ball, beanbags, mindfulness colouring, relaxing music and a guitar to play. The room is full of visual displays and information regarding student wellbeing. The Interoception Room is supervised full-time and available for students to access at any time.
