San Carlo Junior School are now a Health Promoting School. We encourage healthy eating and being active. We have always tried to develop happy and strong minded students but over the next year we are really focusing on the area of mindfulness and well-being. We believe this is the key to our students continued success. The school community is so important to the health and happiness of our students. Not only will the children be encouraged to look after their well-being, so too will their parents/guardians and the staff of San Carlo Junior School. Please check out the pages for tips on children and parent (adults as individuals) wellbeing. We endeavour to keep the pages updated with helpful tips and upcoming events in the area as well as updates about school based initiatives. Please support this wonderful initiative and lead by example in your own homes.Health Promotion TeamLook at some of our students enjoying yoga with Leah McBennett, a local yoga Instructor.
