Like all NSW public schools, we promote the healthy development of students through:

  • school programs and practices that protect and promote health and safety
  • supporting individual students who need help with health issues
  • providing first aid and temporary care of students who become unwell or who have an accident at school.

Student wellbeing

Like all NSW public schools, we provide safe learning and teaching environments to encourage healthy, happy, successful and productive students.

The department is committed to creating quality learning opportunities for children and young people. These opportunities support wellbeing through positive and respectful relationships and fostering a sense of belonging to the school and community.

The Wellbeing Framework for Schools helps schools support the cognitive, physical, social, emotional and spiritual development of students and allows them to connect, succeed and thrive throughout their education.

The school has an important role in the personal and social development of students as well as their intellectual and physical growth.  There are a number of programs aimed at personal development and all staff are involved in the pastoral care of students.  There are also particular staff members with special student welfare roles.

In junior years, the Health programs cover a range of important personal growth issues.  Some of these are also dealt with in subject areas such as Science and Social Science.

The School Counsellor works closely with other staff members in the Student Welfare area.  The Year Advisers and the Careers Adviser also have important roles in these areas for all of our students.

The school has procedures for identifying problem areas with students and dealing with these through reports to parents, parent interviews and referrals by the School Counsellor to community counselling and support services, when appropriate.  Appointments to see the School Counsellor may be made by contacting the office.

Positive Behaviour for Learning

At our school, we use Positive Behaviour for Learning – a whole-school approach for creating a positive, safe and supportive school climate where students can learn and develop. Our whole school community works together to establish expected behaviours and teach them to all students.
