Well Being

“Wellness is the complete integration of body, mind, and spirit – the realization that everything we do, think, feel, and believe affects our state of well-being.”



Well-being is the psychological, cognitive, social, and physical functioning and capabilities that students need to live a happy and fulfilling life.


Given that children and young people spend a sizable part of their daily lives in educational settings, schools are increasingly expected and tasked to fulfill two crucial and interwoven mandates. These are to nurture in students those capabilities that equip them with the appropriate knowledge, understanding, and skills for them to thrive in adult life, whilst enabling them to enjoy themselves and foster personal well-being throughout their educational experience.

Persuasive international evidence highlights the interdependent relationships between health, well-being, and academic achievement. This emphasizes the importance of a whole-school approach to well-being advancement. Examples of improved educational outcomes associated with enhanced well-being and health include:

• Improved levels of school engagement;
• More positive experiences through different education phases;
• Decreased likelihood of students dropping out of education;
• Improved mental health, higher levels of self-esteem and self-efficacy; and
• Increased motivation and self-regulation.


The role of teachers and other staff members, with whom students spend much of their time, is essential to the work of school-based well-being advancement. With aspects such as teacher turnover and teacher confidence identified as barriers to this process, securing healthy, supportive, and empowering working conditions is a crucial enabler, which is a matter of importance for school governance and leadership. In short, teacher well-being, and that of other staff members must be a core, strategic focus for school leaders in the quest for greater levels of student well-being. They must have an effective recruitment and retention policy, foster manageable workloads, and implement positive and meaningful professional appraisal systems.
