Parap Primary School places a strong emphasis on ensuring that the school environment is a safe and positive place for all school users and that high behavioural standards are maintained through the application of a school-wide wellbeing program, Working Together in Harmony. The aim of the program is summarised in the Wellbeing Mission Statement:
At Parap Primary School, we seek through appropriate wellbeing programs to provide students with the skills, behaviour and knowledge that will enable them to participate fully and successfully in our school and within society.
Parap Primary School uses the following resources and methods school-wide to maintain a positive school environment:
Appreciations – no put-downs
Doing our personal best
Having the right to pass
Promoting the health and wellbeing of children is part of improving educational outcomes in schools, and building happy, motivated and resilient children. Since 2011 the Parap School Council have partnered with Millner Primary School and Good Beginnings to employ a part-time School Counsellor.
The School Counsellor acts as a positive link that connects individual students, their families and teachers to help deliver the best possible outcomes for all students.
Our School Counsellor can be contacted regarding any student concerns, feedback and also any issues that require addressing within the school community. If you would like to hear more about the program or wish to speak with the School Counsellor, please feel free to contact our front office.
