Wellbeing Hauora Class

Sarah Higginson - within school kāhui teacher, Ao Tawhiti —

Providing more opportunities for our akonga to learn and engage with a dedicated wellbeing program of learning has been a passion of mine. So next term “What’s Going on Upstairs” is happening as an elective!

A class dedicated to providing students with learning opportunities around wellbeing & hauora, mindfulness, positive psychology & neuroscience. Our ākonga have been expressing the need for more knowledge around how to manage their own wellbeing, emotions, engagement, along with practical tools & strategies to fill up their tool box. There will be a focus on students driving the learning around the topics and sessions and a student-lead Zine to share their knowledge. Using our city as our campus, we will have access to people and spaces, such as, yoga teachers, mindfulness experts, nature walks- ‘forest bathing’, strengths and values coaches too.
