Alex and Me

The "Alex and Me!" Program is a pastoral care and wellbeing program delivered to all Year 7 - 10 students at Alexandra Hills SHS by class teachers. It is a context specific program that was developed after our involvement with the BeyondBlue research project which identified key specific needs of the students at Alexandra Hills State High School.

We are aware that students with high levels of wellbeing make better learners and that they not only demonstrate more effective academic and social behaviour but also generally engage in more appropriate behaviour at school. The "Alex & Me!" program has been designed to provide the psychological, social and emotional skills needed by students to succeed at school and in life.

The "Alex & Me!" program is delivered on a regular basis as a distinct 35 minute lesson and covers topics such as organisation, online safety  and cyberbullying, respectful relationships, mental health, friendships, alcohol and how it is used in Australian society and recognising risks and planning for the future.

It is an important part of the school curriculum and is delivered by staff in a safe and supportive classroom environment using latest evidence, research and resources.
