Haileybury Pangea develops individual student pathways by building on their particular strengths and interests in an online setting that is both safe and connected to a larger community. To guide this, we have in place a comprehensive Student Wellbeing program that underpins a student’s entire learning journey.

This program offers a safe and supportive environment where students can ask questions and be actively involved in discussions around all topics relating to one’s wellbeing. It aims to build their emotional intelligence, develop their social skills and acquire an understanding of the society and world they live in. The importance of resilience and how to manage one’s ability to move through challenging times and grow from experiences is embedded within the program and extends throughout the broader Wellbeing Program. We want every student to embrace respectful relationships and the values of respect, trust, honesty, empathy and kindness.

Every student matters every day

We want each student to thrive in their studies and feel connected, so we work hard to empower students with skills and knowledge to manage their physical and emotional wellbeing.

“Our award-winning Best Student Wellbeing Program* provides the ideal platform for our Wellbeing Team to plan and deliver age-appropriate guidance and support on topics that include respectful relationships and consent, gender and inclusivity, managing one’s mental health, emotions and building emotional intelligence, and keeping safe in the online and physical world.”

Building our Community

Haileybury Pangea students will have multiple opportunities to socialise with their classmates and build lifelong friendships with their peers. In class, lessons are interactive, and students will often work together in small groups using our digital breakout rooms. 

“Outside the classroom, we offer clubs and activities and in-person events. Students can also build their leadership and teamwork skills through a variety of school initiatives. To help with staying connected, a range of online clubs are offered to ensure students can explore new interests and widen their friendship circle.”
