Kids Matter is a flexible whole-school approach to improving children’s mental health and well being which is tailored to school’s individual needs. The Kids Matter Initiative provides social and emotional learning, working authentically with parents, carers and families, while supporting students who may be experiencing emotional or mental health difficulties. Their focus is to offer proven methods, tools and support to students, parents and carers to nurture happy, balanced students.
On Monday 19th August 2013, Bundoora Primary School launched the Kids Matter initiative. Ray White Bundoora’s managing director Russell Adams, was invited to the launch into children’s emotional well being. This program works together with the school’s existing health and well being programs.
