Community Health staff visit our school on a regular basis. One of the services offered is a health assessment when children first commence school.
Children’s vision and hearing are checked and any developmental health concerns are explored through this assessment.

BUZ PROGRAM (Build Up Zone)
Our students participate in this program which is facilitated by Joel Candy, our Chaplain. BUZ uses games, stories, activities, role plays and much more to introduce and develop a common language around such topics are friendship, handling emotions, resolving conflict and becoming bully proof.
The BUZ Program links in closely with elements of the Health Learning Area of the Western Australian Curriculum and are designed to help students develop in the areas of emotional literacy, self-regulation, social competence, positive peer relations and interpersonal problem solving skills.
WELLBEING FOR KIDS
The Unstoppable Me Program is a school wellbeing program that our students participate in once a year. This program is facilitated by Linda from Wellbeing 4 Kids. It combines physical stretches, breathing and relaxation exercises. The students learn important techniques to de-stress, self-empowerment, and relaxation techniques.
Our teachers use the strategies and techniques learned from Linda and implement these exercises into their daily routine.
