Content

In the practical assessment tasks, students experience and investigate strategies to develop a practice of sustainable wellbeing, drawing links between aspects of their lives and their learning.  These strategies include: character strength development, self-care practices, and thinking skills that enable a greater understanding of, and improved approaches when faced with adversity.  Whilst participating in tasks, students apply knowledge and skills to their own lives to experience the wellbeing benefits for themselves.  

Students participate in an authentic group task where they collaborate with another student or community member to apply learning to a real-world product or event that links to an element of wellbeing.   

Students complete an investigation into a wellbeing topic of their choosing, negotiated with the teacher.
