Childhood is a crucial time for growing healthy minds. All children need care and support to develop and learn. Some children may need additional help to reach their potential.
KidsMatter is a mental health and wellbeing framework for primary schools and has been proven to make a positive difference to the lives of Australian children.
Engadine Public School is a "Kids Matter" school. Staff of the school have been learning about the Kids Matter mental health and wellbeing framework and adopting it in our school environment to help all children in their development of a healthy state of mind. It is through this framework we encompass our buddies, social skilling and strategies of intervention.
We invite parents and carers to view the Kids Matter website and discover a wealth of information that is available to support families as children grow and develop.
