Student Wellbeing

...called by God, to listen with the ear of the heart

Rule of Benedict

The recognition of the uniqueness of each person underpins all that we do at Mount St Benedict College. Accordingly, Pastoral Care structures, developed in response to students needs, permeate the life of the College and are reflected in:

  • the teaching and learning programs
  • the rich and vital co-curricular opportunities available to the girls
  • the structures which support the sense of community in the College.

At Mount St Benedict College, we bring together the science of Positive Psychology and best teaching practice to encourage our students to flourish (optimal wellbeing) at school. Positive Education highlights students understanding of their own strengths and develops skills that our students can harness to strengthen their relationships with everyone in their world. This includes building and understand positive emotions, enhancing resilience when faced with adversity, practising mindfulness, and fostering a healthy lifestyle. It is underpinned by seeking meaning in life through service to others and providing skills in achieving personal goals. We encourage our girls to seek and cultivate the best within themselves and strike a fulfilling, manageable balance in their experiences of love, work and play.
