          The Wellbeing Framework for schools

At Grow Your Mind we believe that effective wellbeing needs to be a whole school approach. We have a language of wellbeing and positive mental health that students, school staff and families can use. We also know that schools are busy places. We highlighted relevant parts of both the Australian and NSW curriculum to showcase how you can use the content of Grow Your Mind explicitly in your classroom during mandated health curriculum hours. However, we strongly encourage you as a school to refer to the resources in micro moments, to offer cross curriculm opportunities so as to make the wellbeing messages authentic and applicable AND to use the language of flourishing we have provided as part of your every day interactions.
