Leisa's assistance includes supporting the implementation of the school’s whole-of-school approach to wellbeing by working in partnership with the school's wellbeing team and the school cousellors. Leisa provides support to students to develop social and emotional skills outside of the classroom. This may be through targeted strengths-based programs and strategies that build resilience, coping skills and positive relationships.
