The key values of Melbourne Girls’ College are encapsulated in the vision of young women who will “Lead and Achieve.”
While our College achievements include academic results, our broader definition of success includes personal, social and emotional wellbeing.
In addition to many whole-school wellbeing initiatives, such as clubs and programs, students from year levels 7-10 participate in timetabled Wellbeing lessons on a regular basis. Wellbeing lessons have been developed to meet the individual needs of our students as they progress through the year levels. We deliver wellbeing support and strategies tailored to the students’ context, which align with the Victorian Curriculum Capabilities.
Wellbeing at the VCE level is also a College priority. Students in these year levels participate in variety of activities, including guest presenters and skills workshops, which support the development of Positive Psychology skills.
Students who require more individualised counselling and support for their mental health and other concerns can access the Wellbeing Centre
The themes for Wellbeing at Melbourne Girls’ College are guided by Positive Psychology and aim to develop emotional literacy in all our students. These themes are resilience, empathy, gratitude, kindness, and mindfulness.
