Abstract This research reports on primary school children's experiences of programs facilitated by social work students. This is the first documented research on how Victorian primary school children experience social work students undertaking field education. Data indicated that the student social workers' contribution in a particular model of health promotion enhanced the social, emotional, and personal wellbeing of primary school aged children aged between six and eleven. They facilitated social inclusion programs and access to resources otherwise denied children located in economic social and political disadvantaged circumstances.
