It has been an exciting year for Wellbeing Education at Christ’s College, with the implementation of our targeted Wellbeing curriculum across all levels.

In 2022, Year 9 classes have one period a week of MINDfit throughout the year; Years 10–11 have two periods a week throughout a semester; and Years 12–13 classes have one period a week in Terms 1–3. As 2022 was the first year of MINDfit classes in Years 9–11, all students explored the concept of Wellbeing – what it is and the importance it has in our lives. Classes discussed physical fitness and from there

explored the notion of being “mindfit” and how it could impact on our day-to-day lives.
