At TNIS we have developed a wellbeing model that encompasses both learners and staff.
Based on The Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand’s model the TNIS Wellbeing Model focuses on five main aspects: Give, Take Notice, Keep Learning, Be Active and Connect.
These five areas embody the three main aspects of “The Resilience Project” (TRP). This is a programme we run alongside the wellbeing model to help learners grow, learn and practise resilience. The Resilience Project focuses on Gratitude, Empathy and Mindfulness, all of which link closely to the TNIS Wellbeing model. TNIS teachers highlight a focus each week to ensure learners’ wellbeing is at the forefront of our teaching.
An online “Wellbeing Hub” has been created to support learners and teachers on their well being journey. The site has the focus for each week and supporting material and resources.
Well Being Support
We have effective systems in place to promote positive relationships. We believe in coaching and supporting learners to solve challenges and use restorative practices when seeking solutions.
Our Board of Trustees employs a qualified counsellor to provide additional support for learners’ emotional wellbeing.
