Student Wellbeing

Behaviour Management Policy

Wantirna Primary School has a whole school restorative practice behaviour management policy. All students are given the opportunity to reflect on how their behaviour impacts on their relationships with other students. Students, parents and teachers are involved in the reflective process.

 

Chaplain

Wantirna Primary School has a Chaplain funded under the Federal government’s Chaplaincy program. Our chaplain is available on Tuesdays and Thursdays and is there to support students, parents and staff. The chaplain is always happy to speak to anyone who is a member of the school community.

 

 

Brain Food

Every day students are given a brain food break so they can have fruit during the 2 hour morning block. This helps to keep the students stimulated and well nourished.


Nut allergies

As some students at Wantirna Primary School have nut allergies, students are encouraged not to share food to ensure the wellbeing of all students.


Transitions

Each year Wantirna Primary School fosters relationships with both Kindergartens and Child Care Centres, and local Secondary schools.

  • Our Foundation Transition Program begins in Early Term Two with a 'Teddy Bear's Picnic' and Information Evening for prospective parents. Our 'Fly Into Foundies' program commences in Term 3 and introduces our future Foundation students to their teachers.
  • Our Year 6 Transition Program begins in Term 2 as students and their families visit their Secondary school open days and start the application processes. We work closely with Wantirna College, our local Secondary College; organising visits to and from the College with our Year 5 students experiencing a "day in the life" of a secondary school student.
  • In Term 4, we provide opportunities to meet and get to know their teacher for the following year.

 

Curriculum

At Wantirna Primary School, we provide many opportunities for students to develop their emotional, social and physical wellbeing including incursions such as 'Mind and Body' and 'St John's First Aid' courses for students, and our 'Game On' program during lunchtimes.
