Health and wellbeing are at the very heart of everything we do at Toorak College. The foundation of all that we teach is centred around providing a high quality education in the best learning environment for our students to thrive in.

Toorak College’s Wellbeing Philosophy

We see every relationship and interaction across the School as an opportunity to provide a positive student experience, which in turn, becomes part of our wellbeing philosophy. We do not implicitly teach wellbeing, rather the value of wellbeing is ingrained into every aspect of school life on a daily basis.

Our health and wellbeing initiatives enable students to gather a sense of clarity, to set and achieve positive goals and make responsible decisions, to be able to cope with the challenges presented to them and to enhance their physical, social, emotional, mental and spiritual dimensions.

Whole School Wellbeing Initiatives

Our girls’ mental and physical health are our utmost priority here at Toorak. Across the School we have wellbeing time every morning in order for our students to best mentally prepare for the day ahead. At lunch, our students are able to participate in Art or Reading Clubs, and our Junior School students take part in our Kindness Club. After school we offer a range of co-curricular opportunities to foster connections among year levels including a Prep - Year 6 outdoor Ball Skills clinic and the Toorak Academy of Performing Arts (TAPA).

As students gain greater independence and enter Year 7, they track and monitor their own personal growth and development via the Flourishing program, where they set their own health and wellbeing goals and are provided with support and guidance in how they work towards these goals. At all points of the day, we ensure our students have their wellbeing regarded in various ways. The graphic below shows the different support systems on offer for every student:
