Wellbeing: Years 7 to 12
Senior School Students are supported by a team of staff dedicated to ensuring each student has access to the resources she needs to grow and develop into a self-aware, confident and capable young woman.
Girls belong to an Advisory Group, and meet daily with their Advisor, a member of staff whose central purpose is to know well the girls in their care.
Girls also have access to a support network including Heads of Year, Educational Psychologist, School Counsellor, School Chaplain, Careers Counsellor, Learning Support and other members of a Wellbeing Team led by our Principal and Deputy Principal Student Wellbeing. This team works to develop positive relationships with girls and their families, and monitor and support student wellbeing, both in and out of the classroom.
Korowa’s Sport and Wellbeing Centre, planned for construction in 2019, will feature consulting suites for our health and wellbeing services.
School Counsellor Liz Spurling and Deputy Principal Student Wellbeing Kellie Lyneham discuss how Korowa prepares students for challenges such as exams.
Personal Development Programs
Essential to the holistic development of our Senior School girls is participation in the Personal Development, Careers Education and Religious Education Programs. In Personal Development, girls have the opportunity to engage in a range of concepts and key issues that affect the lives of contemporary young women.
We challenge our girls to consider the ways in which they can begin to take more control of, and responsibility for, all elements of their young adult lives.
In Personal Development, girls have access to a range of experts and educators from within and beyond the Korowa community who are dedicated to assisting our girls to develop habits for life, including self-management, self-efficacy and proactive and protective behaviours, that will prepare them well for the challenges of the final years of Senior School, as well as life beyond Korowa.
