In 2010 Wagaman Primary School began a program called Rock and Water. This program provides young people a pathway to self-awareness, and increased self-confidence and social functioning. The Rock and Water program includes the use of physical exercises, non-intrusive self-defense activities, role plays, group discussions and debriefing exercises which support young people in developing body, emotional and self awareness. During these sessions, the students reflect on what they have learnt, the collaborative skills practiced and their personal journey.
KidsMatter is an Australian primary schools mental health promotion, prevention and early intervention initiative. The initiative was trialled in over 100 schools nationally during 2006-2008. Wagaman Primary joined the KidsMatter initiative in 2009 and in partnership with families and the community, is working towards making a positive difference to the wellbeing of our school community.
