At Northside College, Wellbeing is of paramount importance. Students are provided with a supportive and safe environment to be well informed, to explore issues, to identify and work from their strengths, and to enhance their abilities to be resilient in life’s challenges and changes that confront them. Students are educated in positive change practices in order to enhance their academic, social and personal lives.
The College values and Christian Worldview are foundational to the support of students through special programs. The use of both the keys of the You Can Do It! Program and Positive Psychology enhance student engagement in day-to-day College life. Students enjoy Resiliency Days and Wellbeing sessions, of which support Health classes across the College. Topics such as organization, persistence, confidence, healthy living, healthy relationship development and maintenance, online and personal safety, drugs and alcohol, harassment, self-esteem and healthy body image are explored.
The College also views the family unit, in its various forms, as critical to a student’s wellbeing, and therefore provides parent seminars aimed at supporting and equipping parents, whilst enhancing student growth and learning.
We have a dedicated and caring multi-disciplinary Welfare Team who provide a supportive and confidential service within the College. Both Head of Welfare and the College Chaplain are available to students and their families. Two visiting Clinical Psychologists are also available by appointment, providing for the more specific needs of a student. A small fee is charged by the psychologist for this service.
