The Listening Post
The Listening Post…Bringing the Winters Flat Community together.
At our school, student wellbeing is everyone’s responsibility. We believe that creating a village; a community of care, is the best way to support children’s, families and teachers’ wellbeing and resilience. We do this by inviting families to participate in their school community in whatever way they can, in a way that is meaningful to them.
Building a sense of community
We have a strong sense of community at WFPS built around the sharing of skills, tasks, talents, and food (see The Kitchen Garden) and the philosophy of sustainability.
School-wide Positive Behaviour Support
The School Wide Positive Behaviour Support program provides a framework, which underpins student wellbeing and student management. Our Care Crows mascots encourage us to bring out the best in ourselves, each other and our environment with our school motto: Care for self, others and the environment.
The Berry Street Education Model and Respectful Relationships programs are integrated into the curriculum delivery.
We also have a strong Koori culture at WFPS, with local children attending the Meeting Place regularly, where they explore more traditional forms of learning. We have a good working relationship with the local Nalderun Aboriginal service and the Dja Dja Wurrung community. We are committed to working with our local Koori community to enrich our school culture and support all our students in building on their strengths and resilience.
We welcome your family, your culture, your talents, your challenges, your story.
