The school has a strong emphasis on Student Well Being,
and there is a range of support programs operating at the school: daily
Breakfast Club, funded through Red Cross; Boys on the Bounce and Girls
on the Go to enhance student relationships and resilience; Student Council;
Peer Mediation; The leader in me based on the 7 Habits; You Can Do It!;
and well defined discipline procedures across the school.
A Primary Welfare Officer has added significantly to the support given
to students and staff to improve engagement and wellbeing. The Welfare
Officer runs the Breakfast Club and a weekly Clubs program, as well as
seeking various funding for Cultural Diversity Week and Free Fruit Friday.
All teaching staff participate in RAMP (Risk Assessment Management Program)
which is conducted by the Assistant Principal. Students deemed "at risk"
are monitored by teaching teams, and support strategies are enacted. The
school employs a Speech Pathologist to support students' language acquistion
and usage. A Guidance Officer (Psychologist) supports and counsels students,
families and staff.
Student attendance has been a priority, with classes and students being
acknowledged and rewarded for excellent attendance. Information about
the importance of attendance is regularly included in newsletters and
at school assemblies.
