Catherine McAuley College promotes the mental health and wellbeing of all students. It is vital for students to develop the skills to build positive mental health so that they can meet life’s challenges. They also learn better and have stronger relationships with others.
Part of our commitment is to explicitly teach social and emotional Learning. At Years 7, 8 and 9, students have a timetabled 45-minute session each week, which is facilitated by the Health and Physical Education staff.
CMC utilises the following programs to give students the skills and strategies to build resilience and to understand and acknowledge their own feelings and those of their peers.
- Positive Enhanced Education Curriculum (PEEC) – Institute of Positive Education
- Resilience Rights and Respectful Relationships
