Wellbeing Film Project

South Wellington Intermediate - Jacob's Hope

Students were supported to create their own short film responding to the theme "How do we support someone going through a tough time?" - Student reflections included:

  • I learned that if your friend is in distress and you ask if they are okay and they say they aren’t, you just should just stay with them until they’re feeling okay again.
  • I learned how to read the signs of emotional distress, and how to tell if someone is lying by saying they are okay when they aren’t.
  • I learned that everything gets better.
