  • 2015 Wellbeing Festival_banner

  • The Student Wellbeing Festival 2015 was successfully completed for the eighth year in June 2015 over six days, across three venues in the Archdiocese of Melbourne. Congratulations to the 35 schools and 1,500 students who participated in the festival.

    All participating schools used the Festival to promote wellbeing in their school community. All well as performances, a film component was introduced to the Festival in 2015. The performances and films gave an understanding of what Catholic schools stand for, and the important role that school plays have in looking after all aspects of a young people’s development, not just their academic learning but also their social, emotional and spiritual lives too. The performances and films were created by students and reflected the diversity of wellbeing in all subject areas. Many secondary schools involved used the Festival as an assessment task in the Year 9 and 10 curriculum.

    The Wellbeing Festival gives students in Catholic schools a fantastic opportunity to express themselves and to communicate to their audience of parents, teachers, friends and the community, those areas of their lives that are of utmost importance to them.

    The following special awards were given at the end of the Festival:
