Wellbeing @ OAS
Wellbeing is a vital aspect of the curriculum here at Onewhero Area School. We believe for students to have success at school a holistic approach is required. Wellbeing is taught as part of the curriculum in Years 1-8 with set lessons throughout the year to support student wellbeing. In Years 9-13 these lessons are taught through whaanau classes. At OAS we use a combination of whole school, year group, small group, and individual data through the GoodSpace platform to inform our programs and provide support for our students. GoodSpace screening takes place annually in Years 7-13.
OAS GoodSpace Schools Wellbeing Screening
Purpose of Screening
To identify and manage students for wellbeing issues through a streamlined process of screening, prioritising and managing.
The survey covers a broad range of psychosocial indicators to identify risk and protective factors for adolescents.
It covers Home, Education/Employment, Eating and Exercise, Activities and Peer Relationships, Drug use, Sexuality, Suicide/Self harm/Depression/Mood, and Safety. It is a widely used and well evaluated framework for engaging students about their lifestyle and behaviours.
