Student Well-being

The well-being of our students is as important to our school community as their education. The school years are an important developmental stage, academically as well as socially and emotionally in learning respect, trust and other values that will help the children live happy and balanced lives.

We are a Kids Matter school and all of our teachers have been to training which heavily focuses on the well-being of their students.

Our school is a community and children have to learn to work and play in a group. The community provides children with a sense of security without inhibiting their sense of independence. At all times our behaviour, learning or education support aims to provide an atmosphere of genuine pastoral care for each child.

In the classroom and schoolyard setting children are asked to follow these five expectations:

  • Love and respect God
  • Respect yourself
  • Respect other people
  • Respect property
  • Respect the environment

Safe School Structures

Under the Children's Protection Act, we have the responsibility to protect and care for eevery learner. This includes providing an environment where:

  • Respectful and caring relationships are fostered
  • Children are encouraged to develop a strong sense of self-worth
  • Staff are supported to develop skills to recognise and respond to suspected abuse and deglect
  • Effectice abuse programs are implemented

There are two themes in the Keeping Safe - Child Protection curriculum - We have the right to be safe and We can help ourselves to be safe by talking to the people we trust.

The four focus areas are taught over the four school terms.

  1. the right to feel safe
  2. relationships
  3. recognising and reporting abuse
  4. protective strategies

At all times we are eager to provide a safe school environment for staff, students, parents and visitors. As a community which prides itself on maintaining a safe school for all of its members we do not accept harassment in any form and will work with staff, students and parents to ensure everybody is happy and safe at all times.
