New State Funding for Student Wellbeing

On Friday 10 November 2017 the Department of Education announced details of The Student Wellbeing Support Program.

“The Student Wellbeing Support Program 2018 – 2020 is a 3-year program to support schools, working in partnership with their local community, with additional funding for a student wellbeing support officer to support school wellbeing approaches.

The NSW Department of Education will provide funding to successful schools of up to $7,000 to engage a student wellbeing support officer. Schools must contribute $7,000 and source $7,000 from the community.

Schools have the option to engage a chaplain or youth worker to fill the role of student wellbeing support officer based on what best meets the needs of their students.”
