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.
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.
Student wellbeing team
The student wellbeing team led by Mrs Julie Mehic (Head Teacher - wellbeing,) comprises Year Advisers, Counsellors, the Head Teacher wellbeing, and other support staff. The team strive to meet the personal, social and learning needs of our students to ensure their happiness and safety at school. The team offers several programs to students including camps, motivational presentations, study skills and leadership workshops.
The Year Advisers have a diverse role in encouraging and supporting students. The Year Adviser is the first point of contact for parents if they have concerns about the welfare of their child. Year Advisers:
assist with students transitioning to the school
liaise with parents and staff regarding welfare concerns
co-ordinate health care plans
request work from other teachers if a student is absent for an extended period of time.
When concerned with any matters related to your child’s welfare, the Year Adviser is a good initial point of contact.

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.
