What to expect
Teachers’ mental health and wellbeing is becoming increasingly critical and is linked to absenteeism, long term incapacity and burn out. This Teacher Professional Wellbeing Workshop provides an opportunity for holistic wellbeing to enable school staff to identify strengths and “fill their cup”. It is recommended that Teachers maintain their health and wellbeing by “living well” and “being well”.
Through the Wayapa Wuurrk - Teacher Professional Wellbeing Workshop Teachers are lead through a combination of mindfulness, narrative meditation, a series of physical movements to create and enhance the holistic well-being of individual Teachers. Together with collegial support participants engage in professional teaching networks to broaden individual knowledge and experience.
