Student Wellbeing

Introduction

Holy Child’s school mantra, Safe, Happy and Ready to Learn, encapsulates our belief in the importance of supportive well being practices. We promote a happy and safe school environment where students are encouraged to take risks in their learning. Holy Child is a school where all members feel valued, respected and confident as learners, supported by:

  • School Wide Positive Behaviour
  • Whole school behaviour expectations
  • Student Well Being Assemblies
  • The Literacy Numeracy and Special Needs Program.
  • Start Up Program
  • Parent Liaison officers, interpreters and program assistants.

Discipline is a high priority at Holy Child therefore bullying is not tolerated .Our Discipline Policy is well documented and thus provides effective support for both students and staff.

We place a high value on the right of teachers to teach and students to learn.

Each member of our school community assumes an important role in promoting student wellbeing. We recognise that students are more able to engage fully with their learning when their social, emotional, spiritual and physical wellbeing is healthy and when they possess a strong sense of self-worth. Enhanced student wellbeing is integral to improving student learning outcomes.

Holy Child School provides explicit programs to enhance student wellbeing and to meet the individual needs of all students including:

• School Wide Positive Behaviour Strategy
• Anti-Bullying programs
• Lunchtime Games and Arts Club
• A School Counsellor
• Social and Emotional Learning

Our school mantra, ‘SAFE, HAPPY AND READY TO LEARN’ is well recognized by all the school community.
