What are Wellbeing Warriors?
Catchgate's Wellbeing Warriors are a group of children who all believe that the wellbeing of every person in the school is fundamental to their happiness and good mental health. We meet on a regular basis to ensure that any concerns are highlighted and that the mission statement that we have in place, is implemented and effective. Wellbeing Warriors are are part of a peer mentoring scheme and are not problem solvers but listening ears for those that need it.
Wellbeing Warriors have a special duty to fulfil within school. At break and lunch times, they ensure they are present and visible to all on the yard, this enables children to actively seek them out if they need to talk to them or simply want some quiet time.
As Wellbeing Warriors we:
- Aim to change the way we all think and act about how we feel- this is our mental health.
- Understand and accept that we ALL have different feelings and it is okay to not be okay!
- Will not be responsible for your behaviour and not be able to solve your problems. If we can, we will. If we can’t, we will get a responsible adult to help.
- Will listen to others so that they can talk about how they are feeling.
- Be non judgemental
