School life as experienced by children will have a large impact on their mental health status in adulthood. The World Health Organisation recommends a school model that creates positive experiences and promotes wellbeing. Unfortunately, most International literature and research focussed on school models were mostly western, and study from an Indonesian context is limited. This study aimed to explore the experiences of school life by Indonesian children and to develop a school model that promotes children’s wellbeing in an Indonesian context.
