Student wellbeing

At Parkes High School, wellbeing is considered to be the degree to which a student is functioning effectively in the school community and maximising their potential.

Wellbeing is a sustainable state of positive mood and attitude, resilience and satisfaction with self, relationships and experiences at school. Well-being is the balance of resources, skills and positive attributes, and challenges faced individually. This includes cognitive, emotional, social, physical and spiritual well-being considered as components of one overall, whole, state of well-being.
