The Wellbeing Classroom
CareWorks is very excited to announce a new partnership with Elizabeth Church of Christ, Northern Communities of Hope, Schools Ministry Group and the Swallowcliffe Primary School to resource a pilot of the program "The Wellbeing Classroom".
The Wellbeing Classroom is directed to at-risk children and communities, and provides an holistic approach to child development that puts the child's wellbeing at the centre of the classroom, and takes into account health, relationships, family and community networks.
The program provides resources to support the classroom teacher's capacity to create a safe learning environment and wellbeing for each student, despite the prevalence of chronic stress and trauma in their lives.
CareWorks will facilitate the funding (from Bright Fund - a fund set aside to assist children in their education), Schools Ministry Group will facilitate the program and employ a classroom facilitator, and the two Churches will support the program, through pastoral care, family days and relationship building activities.
