Responsibility for the wellbeing of all students rests with all members of the College community. Teaching staff endeavour to not only serve the educational needs of students but to also support and care for student personal wellbeing in day- to-day school life.
All students belong to a ‘home’ class which has a Homeroom Teacher assigned for the daily administration and support of these students. Homeroom Teachers form a Pastoral Team for their particular Year Level with their respective Year Level Coordinator.
The Student Pastoral Wellbeing Team comprises of the College Wellbeing Team (Counsellors), the Home/School Liaison person, representatives from Careers & Transition Services and Learning Strategies, and the Deputy Principal. This team meets fortnightly and discusses the specific needs and associated support requirements for particular students. Regular dialogue takes place between team members and respective Year Level Coordinators with regard to particular students.
