At SEDA College (SA), we know the significance of wellbeing for student achievement.
The ‘one teacher model’ we use allows our teachers to develop positive relationships with each student and support their individual journeys. They act as mentors, supporting both learning and wellbeing throughout the program. If concerns become more significant, each teacher will collaborate with the Principal and/or wellbeing staff to provide the best care possible.
Student Connect provides professional wellbeing assistance in collaboration with the SEDA College teaching team and parents/carers. We find open and regular communication makes a difference to a student’s experience while they are at school. We encourage regular contact between SEDA College staff, students and parents/carers; and where appropriate, external support providers. This is critical to ensure each student’s individual needs are met.
We encourage all our students to access the Student Connect page on MySEDA. It holds important and relevant information for student wellbeing. There is also a parent page designed to assist parents supporting their child.
Our aim is to develop each student’s capacity to access support services in their local area that are age appropriate and best placed to assist. Student Connect also promotes student wellbeing by developing awareness raising activities relevant to the needs of our students.
