Terang College has a strong commitment to the personal
development and wellbeing of all students. We believe in strengthening each
student’s physical, social, emotional, and mental wellbeing.

our programs we aim to offer our students the service which is most suited to

process of enabling people to increase control over, and to improve their
health and wellbeing. By providing health information in the forms of

allow our students to foster good health and wellbeing. Health promotion
activities are geared toward promoting health and preventing ill-health rather
than focusing on people at risk for specific diseases.

occupational, social, spiritual, intellectual, environmental, and financial. Addressing
all eight dimensions of wellness in our lives builds a holistic sense of
wellness and fulfillment.
