At Altona Green, we prioritise the Wellbeing of our students. Our wellbeing programs of School Wide Positive Behaviour and Respectful Relationships align with our KEFAR values. These values are Kindness, Encouragement, Fairness, Acceptance and Respect.
Students are acknowledged for demonstrating our KEFAR Values by receiving a KEFAR token. Students collect their tokens and can cash them in for a small prize at our KEFAR shop which is run by our school leaders. A Lily Pad is a class acknowledgement aligned to the KEFAR Values. If a class earns 100 Lily Pads they qualify for a Fun Day whereby the students select a number of fun activities to do throughout the day. KEFAR tokens & Lilypads, Respectful Relationships

The Chill Zone is a purpose designed sensory room that that students can attend for a short amount of time when they feel overwhelmed and anxious. It contains passive activities that they are able to engage that will help them regulate their emotions in readiness for a return to their classroom.
