Social,Emotional and Values Education
Elanora State School believes that developing the whole child is paramount and we aim to build a positive culture that places wellbeing and values at the core of education. Social, Emotional and Values Education play an important role in teaching the skills of wellbeing, promoting positive health and character strengths that enable students to fulfil their purpose in life as everyday leaders.
Elanora State School is committed to cultivating a culture of everyday leadership. Our Lead to Succeed program embodies the spirit and underlying philosophy of Stephen Covey’s Principles as well as Michael Bernard’s Habits of the Mind and Positive Psychology. As a whole school we strive to be a positive community, based on respectful relationships, a sense of belonging and inclusion. To this end, our students are actively engaged in learning that promotes their development as confident, persistent, resilient, organised everyday leaders with the ability to maintain strong respectful relationships. We recognise that parents and carers are the most important and influential people in children’s lives and as such, we promote parents/carers and teachers working together to support children.
