Social and Emotional learning (SEL) is about developing the ability to care for others, make responsible decisions, establish positive relationships, and handle challenging situations. These skills are essential for developing resilience and the personal attributes that promote wellness, prevent illness and support recovery. As educators we have an in-depth understanding of SEL and why it's important for mental health and wellbeing. We intentionally teach SEL skills, and foster resilience in our students. We cover key skills for resilience, respectful relationships, and help-seeking.
The staff at Campbellfield Public School have worked hard to create an empowering environment for children and young people to foster independence and responsibility in everyday learning contexts, experiences and activities. Our K-6 classes run weekly focusing on the importance of social and emotional learning. By specifically teaching the skills of resilience and decision making we are empowering students to look after themselves and each other now, whilst giving them the skills to help navigate the ups and downs of life in the future.
