What is Student Well-being?
Within the OCDSB, well-being refers to a positive sense of self and belonging and the skills to make positive and healthy choices to support learning and achievement, provided in a safe and accepting environment for all students.
Every student in every classroom feels a strong sense of well-being and connectedness as a result of learning and living in a school environment that is welcoming, equitable, inclusive and respectful. A place where every student is encouraged to take risks, be creative, and innovative in a learning culture that is caring and safe. A place where healthy relationships are nurtured and students are inspired every day to participate actively and with confidence. A place where conditions enable every student to achieve to the best of their ability and be successful in all aspects of learning and life.
