Vision for Student Wellbeing

At Hume Anglican Grammar we recognise that our students' academic success is closely tied to their overall wellbeing.

When students feel supported, safe, and engaged, they are more likely to perform well academically, have positive relationships with peers and teachers, and experience a sense of belonging in their school community.

Student wellbeing at Hume Anglican Grammar extends beyond the classroom. Relationships and partnerships between families, services and the community are essential for optimal flourishing. All members of our community have a role to play in promoting and nurturing child and adolescent mental health and wellbeing.

At Hume Anglican Grammar we support students at each stage of development whether building foundational skills in the Primary school, enhancing middle years’ development, or supporting the senior years for post-school transition. Every student can fulfil their physical, social, and emotional potential through a stable and supportive family environment, good social skills, quality teaching and learning practices, and positive connections to a range of people in their social network.
