What does your school/community currently do to support different aspects of wellbeing? (May wish to discuss Compassionate & Connected Classroom that learners may have worked with in primary school).
Dear Health and Wellbeing Report (PDF) may give you some context to discuss wellbeing with learners. Samaritans resource for teachers may also be of interest.

What do learners do to stay physically, mentally, emotionally and socially healthy? How can we do this in/out with school?
