Wellbeing and Inclusion Framework
The Learning and Wellbeing Framework for all Queensland State Schools plays a vital role in supporting student wellbeing within the school context and highlights that schools can influence both learning and wellbeing.
Educators, parents, and children and young people themselves all have a role to play as part of a whole school approach to supporting the wellbeing and mental health of all Queensland state school students.
At QACI our Wellbeing and Inclusion framework is informed by the six domains of wellbeing as taken from Positive Psychology and known as PERMA-H.
Experiencing a broad range of positive emotions and developing skills and knowledge to anticipate, initiate, experience, prolong and build positive emotions.
Promoting complete immersion in enjoyable activities that meet your needs and capabilities in terms of challenge level and skills level.
Increasing social and emotional skills in order to create and promote strong and nourishing relationships with self and others.
Meaning and Purpose
Understanding, believing in, and serving something great than yourself and engaging in activities for the benefit of others.
Enabling individual growth through striving and achieving manageable outcomes.
Practicing sustainable habits for optimal physical and psychological health.
QACI Connect Program
These in turn inform the organisation of the QACI Connect program into Connect, Thrive, and Strive; House and Community events; Positive Education Days; and the Succeed program.
At QACI students are valued members of a Connect class, a Pod, a House, a Year Level and the whole school community. Throughout the year, students enjoy activities within each of these groups; enriching school life, creating connections and providing a counterbalance to their academic endeavours.
Students can also participate in our Succeed Programs which offer individual and small group wrap-around support for time and stress management, health, wellbeing, detailed academic support and more.
Students enrolled in Queensland State Schools come from a diverse social, cultural, geographic and family backgrounds, are of many identities, and of all abilities.
Inclusion is embedded in all aspects of school life and is supported by culture, school policies, education queensland policies and everyday practice at QACI.
