Wellbeing for the Whole Person

Wellbeing is embedded into every facet of school life at CGGS. In fact, it underpins everything we do, because we know when wellbeing is at its optimum, students shine, they shine real bright.

Our own wellbeing program, 360° of Being, incorporates five key domains – health, respectful relationships, positive education, environmental appreciation and cognitive engagement. Using these domains as a focus, we work to empower our students to look holistically at their wellbeing because we want them to flourish.

Why Wellbeing?

In tandem with our academic and co-curricular programs, 360° of Being creates the optimum school  environment – where we value our diversity, embrace our differences and empower our students to pursue their passions.

As a result, every CGGS girl is known, supported and understood. She feels safe and connected; enjoys positive emotions and develops positive relationships; finds purpose and joy in what she does; celebrates her own and others’ achievements and is confident to establish her own identity so she can confidently explore the world and her future with a sense of direction, engagement and optimism.

Quite simply, she shines bright!

High Quality Wellbeing

Our Wellbeing Programs are purposefully designed and form part of a holistic wellbeing framework across Foundation to Year 12, which focuses on achieving wellbeing across all health dimensions.

This is achieved through integrating evidenced based wellbeing practices into a dedicated, planned and coordinated series of Pastoral, Curricular, Co-Curricular and student led programs.

Our Wellbeing Programs are student-centered and student-driven, incorporating a focus on mental fitness training, explicit wellbeing curriculum and life skills.

Time to reflect, discuss and take action!

Staff Wellbeing Team

All staff at CGGS are actively involved and invested in student wellbeing. In addition to our educators, we have a Wellbeing Team, who together manage all aspects of student wellbeing and student welfare. We use a collaborative approach, working closely with parents and students to proactively manage all student wellbeing matters.

Student Mentor Program

This hugely successful program is based on the strong belief that fostering cross-age relationships enhances student connectedness and commitment.

This student led program sees our Year 11 and 12 students working closely with Year 7 – 10 students to establish a respectful, safe, nurturing and encouraging environment that establishes deep connections and friendships.

Through fortnightly meetings, the Mentor Leaders deliver activities that ensure students feel valued, heard and are able to meet challenges and take on opportunities with a sense of resilience, support and optimism.

Student Wellbeing Action Group

The Student Wellbeing Action Group is a student run committee that aims to unite the school community and ensure that every girl feels safe, valued and respected. The committee meets on a fortnightly basis, collaborating on school wellbeing activities and initiatives such as CamberWELL Week, Diversity Week, the Diversity Forum, National Day Against Bullying and International Women’s Day celebrations.
