Wellbeing initiatives and projects
Cire Community School is proud of its wellbeing projects and initiatives.
Classroom strategy reports
In 2018, Wellbeing Coordinator, Stephen Duke, spearheaded the introduction of an initiative to strengthen the individual learning programs of students and assist teachers in developing approaches tailored to the individual needs of our young people. These strategies have empowered teachers to implement a range of positive reinforcement and mindfulness techniques and effectively attend to the emotional needs of each student.
Teacher supervision / coaching program
A supervision / coaching program has been specifically developed to give teachers the opportunity to debrief, brainstorm classroom strategies and learn about behavioural psychology and trauma in a confidential and supportive environment.
Students attended weekly martial arts sessions. The Martial Arts Therapy (MAT) Program is designed to help build resilience and confidence in young people. It teaches discipline and respect and the coach himself is a positive role model / adult connection to young people who may not necessarily have one in their lives.
Personal training at the Yarra Centre
Cire partnered with Belgravia to provide students with access to the gym and a weekly personal training session. The program aimed at improving health and fitness which in turn supports positive wellbeing.
Allied health services
Cire continues to provide a range of allied health supports to our students including regular visits from a psychologist and other services from providers such as Inspiro and Headspace.
