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.

Student wellbeing

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.

Head Teacher of student wellbeing

The responsibility of the Head Teacher student wellbeing – Andrew Yates is to look after the welfare of students at the school.

This may involve counselling on personal or school matters, identifying needs of students in the school and catering for them, promoting sound health practices among students and assisting with admission to the school clinic in order to care for students who become ill at school.  

Appointments to see the Head Teacher Student Well-being may be made  through the front office.   

Positive Behaviour for Learning

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