Kidsmatter

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.
