St David’s has always been a caring, supportive and nurturing environment. The care and compassion that are offered to and from staff, boys and parents on a daily basis is incredible and unique in today’s times.

In recent years the St David’s Wellness department has undergone significant development, growing from a small team that focused on offering emotional support and some whole-school interventions, to a multi-disciplinary team that has adopted a holistic approach to support, intervention and wellness, which truly considers the whole individual.

While the department certainly has much more growth and development ahead, the current structures and the critical role that the team plays in the daily functioning of the school as a whole is very exciting and encouraging.

Wellness@St David’s is an evolving space and at present offers support in the following areas to the staff, pupils and broader St David’s community:

  • Emotional wellness
  • Physical wellness
  • Family wellness
  • Psycho-education and support

The team works closely with various individuals and teams across the school to further contribute to the spiritual wellness (working closely with the school chaplain) and the academic wellness (working closely with the Academic Enrichment departments) of all our boys.

The Wellness team is committed to supporting and empowering parents, boys and teachers in their respective spaces. Should you have any questions, comments, or even if you have some information that you would like to share with us, please don’t hesitate to contact us on wellness@stdavids.co.za.
