Wellbeing

The College strongly believes when a student displays a positive sense of wellbeing, this creates the platform from which a positive learning trajectory is launched. Our holistic approach to education aims to foster self awareness, a sense of belonging and connectedness within the College community, promote fortitude and ensure individualised support is available for each student.
All staff work with students to build relationships based on trust, empathy and respect and the provision of a child safe environment to explore their individual goals and develop proactive strategies to achieve them.
Weaved throughout the life of the College, our Virtues Program ensures that wellbeing is not taught in isolation but delivered through an integrated model of pastoral care and activities directed to enhancing their wellbeing and developing personal and social capabilities.
Our staff also work to ensure that new students experience a smooth transition into our College and benefit from the same level of high-quality professional and personalised support enjoyed by all our current students.
