Centre for Wellbeing & Positive Education

At Christ’s College we aim to create an environment where boys flourish.

Good mental health is a prerequisite for effective learning, and the Centre aims to bring positive psychology and best teaching practice together to promote good relationships, foster resilience and encourage positive lifestyle choices.

It is a means of helping students devise their own unique GPS system or personalised road map to assist them to flourish.   

The focus will be on specific skills that assist students to strengthen their relationships, build positive emotions, enhance personal resilience, promote mindfulness, (being present), and encourage a healthy lifestyle.

The focus for 2019 will be:
  1. To have a cohesive overriding programme of health, wellbeing, character and leadership integrated through all year levels at Christ’s College

  2. Links to College Graduate outcomes, which ensures each young man is living a good life by making responsible choices, while considering the needs of the community of which he is a part.
