Wellbeing

At the Millicent Community Learning Centre we recognise the importance of “Wellbeing”.  As teachers and Case Managers we know that personal and learning outcomes improve for young people when they are healthy, feel safe and are happy.

The program works towards providing learning environments that supports students to take positive action and responsibility for their own physical, social, emotional, moral and spiritual health. Case Management is an integral part of assessing and responding to wellbeing needs.
