The Wynne Centre for Boys’ Health and Wellbeing hosted its third Student Health and Wellbeing Forum over the weekend. The forum was attended by student wellbeing leaders in Years 10 to 12 from Hale School, Methodist Ladies’ College, Perth Modern School, Scotch College, St Hilda’s, Shenton College and Churchlands Senior High School.

Also involved on the day were Christ Church old boys Ben Davison-Petch, Brodie Wicks, Declan Barrett, Rohan Waring, Amitabh Jegnathan, Felix King, Jason Lu and Joshua Watson who facilitated a number of the wellbeing discussions.

The forum focused on a number of key outcomes including:

  • equipping and empowering student leaders and committees in the space of student wellbeing and mental health, especially through the sharing of ideas and dialogue
  • providing a framework for establishing a student-led wellbeing committee
  • inspiring and energising attendees-including guest speakers, brain games and take away packs which included HWB resources that students could pay forward
  • an opportunity for student leaders in wellbeing to connect.

Liam Casson, Director of The Wynne Centre for Boys’ Health and Wellbeing, described the importance of initiatives such as the Student Health and Wellbeing forum.

“This forum showcases the School’s ongoing commitment and passion to support student wellbeing and highlights the fact that we are willing to empower our students as part of a collaborative approach that we believe will produce the best outcomes for our students, teachers and wider community.”

“It’s also a pleasure to see our wellbeing alumni give back to an area they are all so passionate about.”

The Student Wellbeing Forum was generously supported by the Australian Government’s ‘Local Schools Community Fund’.
