2017 Westpac Foundation Community Grant

WISA Wellbeing in Schools Australia is pleased to have been awarded a 2017 Westpac Foundation Community Grant which will aid our work assisting marginalised students to flourish. The funds will help us provide a year of support to 50 leaders of Student Wellbeing in marginalised communities across Western Australia. The grants will go to school communities who would not be in a position to access this WISA support in caring for vulnerable students in need. Each of the 50 schools will receive membership of the WISA Western Australian School Wellbeing Network. The membership includes mentor support, blog access to connect with others in the role, network meetings which provide opportunities to share the strengths and challenges in Student Wellbeing work, access to expert feedback, tools and resources and quarterly newsletters.

WISA looks forward to helping 50 Leaders of School Wellbeing across Western Australia expand their essential knowledge, skills and resources to enhance the support and resourcing for upto 5000 marginalised vulnerable students. If you believe your school is in a marginalised community and would benefit from this support, contact Jac Van Velsen at WISA email wisawellbeing@gmail.com before 10 November 2017.

Westpac Community Grant 2017

What people are saying

Some excellent resources and reading. Inspired me to begin planning and making changes for 2016. Also affirmed for me what we are doing well as a school. Content affirmed that we are on the right track as a school. Thanks for a great day. Very valuable and look forward to doing some reading and taking key points and ideas to leadership and staff.

Finding out about programs that other schools use was good. Thoroughly enjoyed the day & would like to be able to keep in contact & be informed with useful strategies, programs, PD workshops. Definitely recommend. I would love to have our staff be part of this. Would like to find out more about WISA network.

Great array of tools that can equip staff and students to deal with wellbeing and social emotional issues. Great content. I have used some models prior – great refresher & great links to AISTL standards and Core Social Emotional competencies.

Gave some practical advice for school setting as well as reminding me of processes/steps that I knew but needed a refresher – great work! As a year level coordinator, most of what was discussed today was useful for the work I do with students. Timely reminder of some great useful tips.
