Siena College Catholic Girls School, Camberwell VIC – Building Resilience

Staff at Siena College work proactively to support the individual needs of all students and to build resilience alongside their social and emotional capacity. Regular opportunities are provided for students to build positive strategies to cope with the stressors they have identified in their lives. The Wellness Program is underpinned by approaches that focus on establishing and maintaining positive relationships and purpose, being self-aware and mindful, and practising self-care. These aspects contribute to the full flourishing of each student at Siena. An important part of the learning process for our students is educating them to recognise when they need support and how to access this. Empowering students to be resilient equips them with the skills to cope with the challenges of loss and change, and with the personal resources to make a difference in the world.
