Wellbeing in Education: Check and Connect
When you’re feeling down, talking to friends and whānau can make a big difference – support and aroha are the key to positive wellbeing!
The rangatahi at Rolleston College gather each morning to take part in a ‘Check and Connect’ session where they can chat about how they’re feeling. Students say it’s one of the most important parts of their day, and they love being able to connect with those around them in an understanding and supportive environment.
