This week The Glennie School proudly inaugurated its latest facility, the Student Wellbeing Centre, displaying the continued commitment the School has in providing a nurturing and inclusive environment where every girl matters, every day.

The Centre offers a range of services aimed at addressing various aspects of student wellbeing, including a ‘cool space’ for students and information to support student independence and empowerment.  The resources extend from promoting self care, resilience, and emotional intelligence. Additionally, it serves as a resource hub for educational materials to support our Character Development curriculum, self-help resources, and referrals to external support services, ensuring that students have access to the assistance they need and fostering courage in our students to equip them with the ability to bounce back after facing adversity.

Director of Wellbeing, Mrs Emily Whiting said “our students are at the core of everything we do at Glennie. The opening of the Student Wellbeing Centre reinforces our commitment and investment to nurturing not just the girls’ academic potential, but also their social and emotional health. Wellbeing at Glennie is where each girl is seen, in every classroom, in every program and in every opportunity. The Glennie School is a place where girls don’t just belong, they flourish.”

Principal of The Glennie School, Ms Mary Anne Evans, reiterated this message during her address at the Centre’s opening. “We believe that a supportive and inclusive environment is essential for our students to flourish and reach their full potential. The opening of our Student Wellbeing Centre allows this space to become a pivotal hub for students seeking guidance and support so she can be ‘All She Can Be’ “.

Glennie’s commitment to student wellbeing and the intrinsic theme of “flourishing” was a message also echoed during the Official Opening performed by the Right Reverend Cameron Venables. At the completion of the ribbon cutting ceremony invited guests and students had the opportunity to tour the new building, many commenting on the impressive and warm feel of the development whilst still maintaining the building’s iconic facade from 1912.
