The WAPPA Wellbeing Committee, as part of their work, has developed a Wellbeing Mantra. The committee encourages you to print the mantra and place it somewhere prominent in your office where you can refer to it regularly. This version of the mantra is designed for you to use in your schools.
Please feel free to adapt the message to suit your school and your audience. The Committee would like to think that whilst not of the same level of significance as an Acknowledgement of Country, the mantra may none-the-less be regularly referred to, or even recited by, the school community.
