Health & Wellbeing
BUSY Schools is aware that our students come from diverse backgrounds and we’ve built a strong foundation of communication and support for all students and families. Our small team of teachers, youth workers and teachers’ aides work closely together to support the students to cope with the demands of schooling, as well as the demands that they face outside of school.
BUSY Schools also alleviate some of the stress that schooling can cause by supplying transport and school supplies, including uniforms to families, as well some basic food for lunches for students who do not bring their own.
We have connections with a variety of support organisations, including:
- Family Connect
When dealing with the pressures of school, we understand that not all students cope in the same way and some may feel anxious. Our teachers and Curriculum Developer work together to ensure that, where possible, assessment tasks are not due on the same day. Our teacher aides have knowledge and experience in working with students requiring extra learning support, as well as behavioural support, and our youth worker is experienced and able to keep students as calm as possible.
The last hour of each school day is designed to be relaxing and enjoyable for students. Each day they choose between a range of activities including art, fitness and study.
