Well-being Curriculum - PERMAH

Lowood State High School recognises that a student's Emotional Literacy is integral to their success at school.  Having positive coping mechanisms links to better engagement with learning, and builds confidence and resilience in a young person. 

 

The Well-being Lessons explicitly highlight areas of a person's well-being, allowing guided discussion, group work, reflection and role plays, while teaching and strengthening a student's coping strategies.

 

The lesson comprises of 4 sections:

  • Mindfulness – which is explicitly taught and practiced, encouraging students to use this strategy in other areas of their life
  • Positive Behaviour for Learning – the Rule of the Week, in alignment with our RISE (Respect, Integrity, Self-Reliance, Engagement) values, is explicitly taught and discussed, with supporting activities, examples and role plays
  • Brain Breaks – an evidence based practice for students to 'take a brain break' from their learning, which increases engagement and reduces fatigue
Well-being – a targeted and logical series of lessons to highlight age-appropriate matters for the students around the areas of:


  • Positive Emotions Encourages individuals to "anticipate, initiate, prolong and build positive emotional experiences" and accept and develop healthy responses to negative emotions (Norrish, Robinson & Williams 2013)

  • Engagement  Involves living a life high in interest, curiosity and absorption and pursuing goals with determination and vitality (Norrish, Robinson & Williams 2013)

  • Relationships Consists of "developing social and emotional skills to enable the development of nourishing relationships with self and others"  (Norrish, Robinson & Williams 2013)

  • Meaning   -   Is about developing an understanding of the benefits of serving a cause greater than ourselves and engaging in related activities (Norrish, Robinson & Williams 2013)

  • Accomplishment  Involves striving for and achieving meaningful outcomes   (Norrish, Robinson and Williams 2013)

  • Health -  Refers to establishing habits that support positive physical and psychological health (Norrish, Robinson & Williams 2013)

 

Students are provided with guided learning, discussions and strategies for success in these areas of their life.
