Our Wellbeing Programmes

At Christs College, wellbeing is central to all that we do. 

Our wellbeing strategy builds upon the traditional pastoral care model already applied within the College. We focus on teaching a proactive model of wellbeing underpinned by science and empirically validated positive psychological principles. The foundations of our model include mindfulness, character strengths and growth mindset.

Wellbeing is the foundation of ensuring Each boy at his best. At College our goal is on developing our young men to leave College with not only the academic skills but the ability to adapt to our ever-changing world. 

We aspire to intentionally teach the competencies and skills to support our students to develop the qualities underpinned by the concept of The Christ's College Graduate.

  • Courage and resilience

  • Confidence and humility

  • Compassion and empathy

  • Self-awareness

  • Disposition to serve 

  • Personal excellence

  • Interpersonal skills

  • Ability to lead and follow

  • Global bicultural competence

These skills are intentionally taught and embedded across all aspects of the student’s College experience including inside the classroom, in Chapel, on the stage and on the sporting field. The tools and competencies, taught and reinforced with repetition across life, provide the opportunity to students to develop key skills to flourish. 

Our key focus is developing relationships with the boys through mentor groups, House groups, on the field and stage, and in the classroom, to build rapport with the boys and for us to know each boy so we can support them to be their best – whatever this looks like. 

We draw from key positive psychological character strengths, mindfulness and growth mindset to help the boys deal with the busy world we live in as these skills will help them while here but also more importantly allows them to flourish once they leave the College gates.
