Learning & Wellbeing at Logan Reserve State School
KidsMatter is a national mental health
initiative for primary schools that is proven to make a positive difference to
the lives of Australian children. KidsMatter is a whole-school approach to improving
children’s mental health and wellbeing. Logan Reserve State School was proud to
become a KidsMatter school in 2013.
We are committed to supporting the
wellbeing of our students by building a positive learning culture through
engaging learning experiences and nurturing relationships with our students and
families. Mental health and wellbeing is essential for learning and life.
Children who are mentally healthy learn better and have stronger relationships
with the people in their lives. Becoming a KidsMatter school gives us the tools
and resources to support our students and families.
Kids Matter works hand-in-hand with our
commitment to the schoolwide Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL), and our focus on
creating a positive, safe and supportive learning environment. In our school,
every face has a place and every child is cared for.
Logan Reserve State School supports the provision
of appropriate learning experiences for all students. The STRIVE team
facilitates the overall provision of services for all children and plans the
nature of support and intervention. The STRIVE team is able to plan the support
for our students and monitor ongoing progress to ensure high quality learning
outcomes for all students.
The STRIVE team may consist of the Principal,
Deputy Principal, Guidance Officer, Special Education Teacher-In-Charge,
Speech-Language Pathologist, Behaviour Advisory Teacher and Intervention &

Our Chaplaincy Program is voluntary and assists
our school support the pastoral needs of our students. This can include the
provision of pastoral care, support for social and emotional needs and
enhancing engagement with the broader community. The Chaplaincy Program is not
to be confused with the support provided by the Guidance Officer. At Logan
Reserve State School, the Chaplain does not provide counseling services to
students or families, these matters must be referred to the school’s Guidance
Officer. The Chaplain supports the wellbeing of our students and families in
conjunction with the other support services available within the school.
