Wellbeing

We create an inclusive learning environment that recognises and values student wellbeing as critical to student success.  

Student programs involve physical, social, cognitive and emotional wellbeing.

The role of the Student Wellbeing Coordinator and the Wellbeing Team is to support and guide all students who attend the school. The Wellbeing Team supports the diverse needs of our students and promotes connection between them, their families, and the wider school community. The team assists in the organisation and delivery of programs that support current student needs and their ongoing social and emotional development.

Most young people are resilient and able to cope with the normal challenges of adolescent development without the need for specialised support or intervention. But some are more vulnerable or have experienced disadvantage. These students may be affected by these challenges and need support.

For those in need, the Wellbeing Team liaise with parents, carers, and clinical services in the wider community to ensure that positive and appropriate support is in place.

Students are encouraged to contact the Wellbeing Team by first discussing any concerns they may have with their parents, tutor teacher or year level coordinator who can have a confidential discussion with the Student Wellbeing Coordinator or any member of the Wellbeing Team. Students can also speak directly with a member of the Wellbeing Team on site or complete a self-referral form.

The following are some of the services available in the wider community to further support young people and their families.
