KidsMatter

KidsMatter aims to strengthen the mental health and wellbeing of children, reduce mental health problems amongst children, and achieve greater support for children experiencing mental health difficulties, and their families.
Kids MatterIt includes:

  • KidsMatter Early Childhood: implementation in preschools and long day care

  • KidsMatter Primary: implementation in Australian primary schools

  • KidsMatter Transition to School: support during the transition to school.

Each initiative involves the people who have a significant influence on children’s lives – parents, carers, families, child care professionals, teachers and community groups – in making a positive difference to children’s mental health.

Belmay Primary School takes part in the KidsMatter program which is aimed at improving the mental health and well being of primary school students. We have recently been involved in a pilot program for parents of children in Kindergarten to Year 1, looking at developing strong relationships between families and the school and supporting parents to help their children make a positive transition to school.

As part of our KidsMatter program each term, we attempt to hold an after school family activity. In previous terms and years, various staff helped organise arts tabloids. energetic rounds of bootscooting, making music, noodle drama, family fun volleyball games, sport tabloids and painting patterns. The evening finishes with a sausage sizzle and fruit/vege platter. Everyone has a wonderful time and wants to stay for more! Keep a look out for upcoming KidsMatter events in the Belmay Newsletter.
