Wellbeing

Welcome to the Frederick Irwin ᰮ School online wellbeing hub.

We recently launched SchoolTV, an initiative that allows parents to access a range of resources for different topics from mental health to exam support.

At Frederick Irwin ᰮ School, we prioritise the wellbeing and mental and physical health of our students, staff and community members. Students and Parents can access Wellbeing resources, fact sheets, games, mindfulness activities, plus much more via the Student Hub. 

Please contact Mrs Robyn Dixon, School Counsellor, on admin@fias.wa.edu.au if you have any further questions.

Mentally Healthy School

Frederick Irwin has partnered with the initiative of Act Belong Commit which has the guidelines for promoting positive mental health by providing a simple approach everyone can adopt to become more mentally healthy.

Our Mentally Healthy Schools Program provides a framework to embed Act Belong Commit within the classroom, school environment and whole school community to boost the mental health and wellbeing of students and staff and prevent the onset of mental health problems.

The program aims to:

• Encourage our students to adopt mentally healthy behaviours early in life
• Build resiliency so they can cope better with problems and stress
• Reduce stigma around mental illness and increase openness about discussing mental health
• Build the capacity of staff to create mentally healthy school environments
• Foster partnerships between schools and their communities.
