At Ormiston State School we recognise that learning is inextricably linked to wellbeing. Positive wellbeing is dependent on a sense of belonging and respect. This requires a belief that personal characteristics, capabilities and individual needs are understood and considered. Therefore, learning experiences need to be real life, inclusive, engaging, and purposeful. These are integral foundations to successful learning and cannot be separated from the curriculum or pedagogical practices.
At Ormiston State School this is a shared vision as a community. We have developed and continually work to maintain a positive and proactive school environment. This has a strong focus on wellbeing at all levels, that informs all aspects of school decision making. Through continual positive messaging linked to capabilities, goals and achievements, learners are encouraged to believe in themselves. This promotes active engagement with the school values. Individuals are encouraged to contribute to, and take responsibility for local decision making, as well as being empowered to be the best they can be. Ormiston State School is committed to ensuring staff and students have the capability and confidence to identify and apply appropriate skills and strategies to maintain this commitment. Individual success and an ability to succeed as a lifelong learner who actively and successfully engages in their community is our ultimate goal.
