The wellbeing framework takes the form of kolam (a traditional South Indian design) and places the AISC logo and its ripples at the center, as we believe small acts that intentionally promote wellbeing will have a ripple effect across our community. The petals of the framework detail the content (orange) and application (white) of our wellbeing framework.
The four content domains and their components (described below) outline the focus areas for nurturing wellbeing in our community. The way in which we do this is grounded in Geelong Grammar School’s approach to creating a foundation of wellbeing in which time is devoted to:
- learning the concepts,
- living them in practice,
- teaching them in our classrooms, and
- embedding them in our systems and processes.
