Support of students’ social, emotional, health and wellbeing is ensured by providing a safe and supportive environment. Teachers as mentors, TAG Teachers, are allocated a group of students (TAG Class). TAG Teachers foster mutual respect and fairness through values education. We expect our students to be free from all forms of bullying and harassment. We actively encourage compassion, tolerance, respect, support and consideration for each other. Our approach to bullying is shared problem-solving, focusing on empowerment and developing awareness of their own rights, as well as their responsibility to respect the rights of others.
The Student Services team offers additional support through one-on-one counselling, assisting with goal setting and providing career information and learning support. Our community links also provide the opportunity of involvement in a range of mentoring programs. Some examples are Shine for girls and Strength for boys, which focus on supporting adolescents’ needs.
The Nurse primarily assists in health education and health promotion strategies at the College. The Nurse is accessible to students who may be seeking assistance with adolescent psychosocial and physical health issues that may arise. The College works in partnership with the Community Health Nurse to develop a coherent and coordinated approach to address the health needs of students.
