Growing a Wellbeing Culture –
Equipping Staff in Christian Schools
Wellbeing has been a “fashionable” topic over the last number of years, driven by the health and wellness industry and shaped by pop psychology. The history of wellbeing has delivered various models and diverse definitions. How do we grow a Christ-centred Wellbeingculture in Christian schools to ensure our students flourish according to God’s creative design?
In this Pacific Seminar we consider a God-shaped view of Wellbeing for the whole person, and what Wellbeing looks like in a Christian community. As educational leaders, teachers, and staff, we will:
- establish a Christian perspective for understanding Wellbeing
- explore how we grow a Wellbeing culture in Christian-based learning communities
Join our special guest speaker Lauren Graham, the Pacific Group Director of Wellbeing for the Pacific Group of Schools as Lauren brings her experience and expertise in psychology and counselling to help us understand wellbeing from a Christian perspective in our role as Christian Educators and Staff in Christ-centred learning communities. This is a seminar not-to-be-missed.
