This year Loreto College implemented its newly developed Social, Emotional, and Academic Development (SEAD) Program for students, parents and teachers. Because a program did not exist that was specifically founded on the needs of girls, the College designed its own. Based on evidence of best practice by researchers in the fields of girls’ emotional, social and academic development, the SEAD Program provides a developmental framework that is specific to the needs of girls as they grow and develop from Reception through to Year 12. The Program is delivered to students through structured timetabled lessons as well as out of the classroom experiences, whilst the parent component consists of seminars, book clubs and extensive online resources. The SEAD Program ensures that teachers and parents are working in unison to achieve the best outcomes for girls. The integration of social-emotional skill development in conjunction with academic learning outcomes, ensures that all girls develop holistically as resilient and confident girls and young women.
