The Wellbeing Community of Practice (COP) kicks off in March 2019. The Wellbeing COP supports schools and teams who are at different places on the wellbeing journey. For some it may be the very beginning, whilst others may bring considerable experience and expertise.
The format and content will be similar to the 2018 Secondary COP initiative with a focus on:
- wellbeing literacy
- te Ao Māori perspectives and tikanga
- leadership of change
- learning from each other across schools.
The process involves four hui (terms 1-4), mentoring sessions, and webinars – all focused on strategic action back at school.
The facilitators are Greg Jansen, Dr Lucy Hone, Janina Konia and Dr Denise Quinlan.
The Wellbeing Community of Practice (COP) supports secondary schools in developing systematic whole school community wellbeing strategies. The purpose of the COP is to:
- create opportunities for leaders, teachers, and students to develop and implement a school wellbeing programme
- create opportunities for the sharing of emerging innovative practice between secondary schools in order to support, challenge, and provoke ongoing transformation across the secondary education sector in Greater Christchurch.
Who is the event for?
This Community of Practice is offered to the same secondary schools as 2018. However, schools can enter new teams of four people comprised of two teachers or leaders and two students. This means that there will be teams of eight people in each school collaborating on wellbeing initiatives (four from the 2018 COP and four from 2019 COP). Having students involved from across the schools will add authenticity to the outcomes.
