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

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.

Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL)

At our school, we use Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) – 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.

School Counselling Service

School counselling staff are members of the school learning and support team. A teacher may recommend the service by referring a student to the school’s learning and support team. As a parent or carer, you may refer your child directly to the school counselling service. Students can also self-refer to the service.

 

The school counselling service can:

  • support students who are worrying about school work, friends, getting in trouble at school or feeling down

  • help parents and carers make decisions about your child’s education

  • assess a student’s learning and behaviour

  • help teachers and students identify and address disabilities that may affect learning

  • liaise with other agencies regarding student wellbeing.

 

School counselling is confidential. For more information about learning and support teams and the school counselling service, visit:
