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.

Bounce back program

Bounce back is a social and emotional skills program to develop resilience, optimism and interpersonal skills with students Kindergarten to Year 6. Students who do not attend a community language program participate in the Bounce back program for 1 to 2 hours per week.

It is taught by classroom teachers and based predominantly on children’s literature (especially younger and older picture books) and follow-up language/literacy activities.

Keep kids safe

Parents or carers who engage the services of a private tutor or coach have an important role to play in helping to keep their children safe.

From 1st April 2016 adults who provide private tuition or coaching services to children will need to obtain a new working with children check (PDF 754KB)

The certificate for self employed people will no longer be valid after their expiry date and the certificate holders will need to apply for a new working with children check.

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.
