Health and Wellbeing


Health and Wellbeing

Wiltja Boarding’s highest priority is ensuring the safety, health, and well-being of students in our care. We believe that a healthy and inclusive learning community nourishes students physically, emotionally, and intellectually. It fosters joy in learning and living with others and ensures that all feel safe, seen and supported.

Wiltja Boarding has numerous policies and programs in place designed to ensure student safety and wellbeing. These police and programs have been developed in consultation with the PYEC, the Department for Education and other independent professionals and agencies. We maintain our commitment to creating an environment of safety and respect.
