Theodore Primary is a KidsMatter School. KidsMatter is an Australian mental health and wellbeing initiative set in primary schools and other educational settings including child care facilities. It is a framework which has a focus on:
- creating positive school and early childhood communities
- teaching children skills for good social and emotional development
- working together with families
- recognising and getting help for children with mental health problems.
Through KidsMatter Primary, schools undertake a two-to three-year cyclical process in which they plan and take action to be a positive community; one that is founded on respectful relationships and a sense of belonging and inclusion.
