Supporting Students

Welfare

Student Welfare is everyone’s concern. It pervades the whole curriculum and all school activities. A comprehensive policy is maintained and observed continually and relates to such items as:

  • Child Protection
  • School rules and supervision of students
  • Discipline and safety
  • Good citizenship
  • Ceremonies and awards.

School Counsellor

A counsellor is scheduled to visit the school regularly each week, providing support and guidance for all aspects of student development – emotional, social, intellectual and physical.

Our Counsellor is a registered psychologist who is readily available for parent interviews by appointment.

The Student Council (SRC)

The Student Council has two functions. Primarily it is the voice of the students in the running of the school. Items of concern to the students are discussed at class level and these are brought by Councillors to the fortnightly council meeting where they are addressed, listed and carried to the appropriate authority to deal with them. Councillors report to classes about the actions taken.

Student Councillors are elected by classes (Years Two to Six) at the beginning of each semester.

Learning Support

A Support Teacher Learning Assistance (STLA Teacher) works mainly in a collaborative, consultative role with school staff, other support personnel, families and appropriate members of the wider school community. Children who are part of the program are assisted by their parents and teachers who have ready access to the Support Teacher’s guidance in developing appropriate programs.
