Heatley State School - Andrea Bueno

Heatley State School is built on a community that recognises and respects uniqueness and strives to support the growth of its members in their educational, emotional and social pursuits. We utilise community support such as Yoga Tools for Schools in supporting student learning and wellbeing. HSS through the Heatley Way: Learn, Care, Play, empowers and encourages students to take individual responsibility for learning and behaviour by promoting creativity, respect, responsibility positivity, cooperation, being active and enjoying school. We encourage all teachers in our school to practice and share Yoga Tools because these tools have been proven to enhance the personal wellbeing of our staff and also help our students to focus, self regulate and engage with learning.

Aitkenvale State School - Libby Rodgers

Aitkenvale State School recognises that learning and well-being are inextricably linked – students learn best when their well-being is optimised, and they develop a strong sense of self and personal expectation when they experience success in learning. Yoga Tools are a new addition to Aitkenvale’s wellbeing framework, however they are already assisting our students to become safe, responsible and respectful achievers inside and out of the classroom. With a lunchtime yoga club well on the way, led by Program Leader Libby Rodgers, our vibrant and diverse school community is better equipped to make healthy, positive choices with the help of Yoga Tools.

Learn more about Libby.
