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 Australian Curriculum for students from Kindergarten to Year 12. Participating schools have the option to choose from range of workshops, which are directly linked to the current Health and Physical Education framework.

Rabbitohs Wellbeing programs are designed to develop knowledge, understanding and skills to create opportunities for students to take action to enhance their own and others’ health, wellbeing and physical activity participation.

Suite of Educational programs include:

Primary and High School

  • E-Safety – Promoting online safety and how to protect themselves when interacting in an online environment.
  • Healthy Relationships - Teaches students about how to develop healthy and respectful relationships with their peers.
  • 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.

Primary Programs

  • Oral Health and Nutrition – Teaches students three key principles for oral health; Eat well, Drink well and Brush well.
  • Gratitude – Promoting kindness, appreciation and empathy.
  • Tackle Bullying - Provides students with the knowledge and skills to address bullying in their schools.
  • Get Moving - Emphasises the importance of physical activity and practical ways students can increase their daily exercise, whilst also promoting inclusion, respect and teamwork.

In 2020, the Rabbitohs Wellbeing Program engaged over 18,000 students and continues to be met with strong community demand in 2021.
