Rabbitohs Wellbeing Program

After extensive consultation with our primary school stakeholders, Souths Cares launched a new health and wellbeing program in 2017 called the Rabbitohs Wellbeing Program.

The program involves interactive workshops delivered by Souths Cares staff and ambassadors which are aligned with the National Curriculum for students in grades 3-6.

Participating schools have the option to choose from a number of workshops, depending on their unique health and wellbeing priority areas.

Topic areas include:

  • Tackle Bullying- Provides students with the knowledge and skills to address bullying in their schools.
  • Cyber Safety- Helps students stay safe when using the internet and social media, as well as providing practical tools to respond to online bullying.
  • Get Moving - Emphasises the importance of physical activity and practical ways students can increase their daily exercise, whilst also promoting inclusion, respect and teamwork.
  • Healthy Relationships- Teaches students about how to develop healthy and respectful relationships with their peers.
  • Oral Health – Teaches students three key principles for oral health; Eat well, drink well and brush well.
  • Gratitude – Promoting kindness, appreciation and empathy.
  • Hygiene – A brand new workshop launched in 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The workshop aims to stop the spread of the virus through teaching students about best-practice hygiene.

In 2019, the Rabbitohs Wellbeing Program engaged over 12,500 students and continues to be met with strong community demand in 2020.
