Social & emotional wellbeing
The Social and Emotional team was formed during the scholastic year 2017/2018 to look after the social and emotional wellbeing of St Aloysius college learners and members of staff. It also aims to work with parents/guardians in a way that helps their social, emotional and spiritual development and wellbeing.
‘Social and Emotional wellbeing creates the foundation of healthy behaviours. It also helps prevent behavioural problems and mental health issues’ (National Institute and Care Excellence).
As a team we are committed to ensure that students develop holistically by giving them our full support and by helping them acquire social and emotional competencies.
The purpose of the team is to formulate and implement policies and practices regarding social and emotional wellbeing, namely,
- social awareness
- relationship management
- responsible decision making
The team is made up of different professionals from the three schools within St Aloysius College: Fr Jimmy Bartolo sj, Helena Sammut, Angele Briffa, Suzanne Pace and Suzanne Mohnani.
