Years 12–13 MANifesto

MANifesto is a specialised wellbeing programme for Years 12–13. It is designed to focus on the challenges and opportunities afforded to student’s in their final years at Christ’s College.

The session content is based on the key principles of mindfulness practice, application of character strengths and developing a deeper understanding of growth mindset, regulating internal state (thoughts and feelings) to support students to flourish. In addition, the programme has embedded content specifically identified by Years 12–13 students as relevant, including sexual diversity, building healthy relationships, consent, budgeting, alcohol and drugs.

The intention of the wellbeing sessions is to increase a student's awareness of his internal state (thoughts and feelings), teach effective emotional regulation and coping skills to support him to manage the demands of the year, and build competencies to support effective coping as students transition out of school.
