Supporting Staff Wellbeing - a Loop Breakfast event

Wed 3 July, 7.30am - 9.00am

Hutt Valley High School

Come and hear about initiatives, programmes and ideas being tried by colleagues in Wellington schools that focus on 'Supporting Staff Wellbeing and Helping Staff Support Each Other'. Staff from any Loop schools are welcome to attend.  Attendance is free of charge.  Please register using the link at the bottom of this page.

At this session, we will hear from:

  • Anna Wilson, Wellington Girls’ College
    At the start of this year Wellington Girls' College undertook a review of what it was doing to support staff wellbeing.  In her presentation, Anna will share what they did to undertake the review and the resulting plan being created around the Mental Health Foundation’s five ways to Wellbeing.

  • Siobhan Haley and Katie Long, Hutt Valley High School
    HVHS offers a coaching programme each year to all staff, both teaching and support staff. The choices include one on one coaching, group coaching and the opportunity to form coaching partnerships. It is voluntary and staff are able to choose to participate in as many options as they like. Hear from Siobhan and Katie how this programme works, and its impact.
  • Steve Conroy, Tawa College
    Tawa Kāhui Ako began a work stream of Wellbeing in its community of schools at the beginning of 2018. It became clear from the first meeting that looking after Staff Wellbeing was urgent and needed to be addressed before student wellbeing. A range of Wellbeing measures to support staff were introduced, with varied success. As we continue to grapple with the ambiguity of the term Staff Wellbeing, one question remains unanswered: Whose responsibility is Staff Wellbeing?
