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 crea​ting a positive, safe and supportive learning environment. In our school, every face has a place and every child is cared for.
