The heart of education
Student wellbeing and strengthening community wellbeing is a whole-school priority at Geelong Grammar School; critical to shaping a positive future for our students, ultimately shaping a positive future for our world.
Our focus is to support every young person to flourish, thrive and achieve.
We believe this can only occur when a young person’s social-emotional, ethical, and physical development is considered equal to their learning and academic needs.
Research suggests that wellbeing and learning have a reciprocal and interconnected relationship. Wellbeing positively influences student learning outcomes, and success in learning enhances student wellbeing.
Consideration for student wellbeing is embedded deeply in everything that we do as a school and community. It is implicit in our way of being and explicit in our strategies, structures, programmes, and policies.
