This chapter comprises a case study of the values education practices of a school heavily involved in the Australian Values Education programme. It is constructed in a way that fleshes out and illustrates the concept of the student wellbeing pedagogy that was outlined in Chapter 1. Instructional scaffolding is the lynchpin of the pedagogy and it can take a variety of forms. The case study of the Student Action Team approach to teaching and learning with its service learning dimension illustrates how such an instructional scaffold enables a school to shape teaching and learning in line with its core values as well as have students constantly transact the core values in ways that enhance student social, emotional and academic wellbeing.
