We commit to providing safe and supportive environments which nurture the wellbeing of all students and staff in our community, and hold firmly to the belief that they have a right to be safe, respected and valued in an inclusive environment. We know that when students are happy, they are more engaged with their learning.

Schools benefit from wellbeing initiatives and pastoral care support through Sydney Catholic Schools – in areas such as anti-bullying, positive behaviour, student counselling, refugee support and child protection – which range from universal support for all students, to targeted interventions for students with complex social and emotional needs.

We promote student wellbeing beyond the curriculum through the provision of counselling services. Additional wellbeing activities include:

  • Harmony Day
  • Anti-bullying and cyber-bullying workshops for students and for parents
  • RuOK Day
  • SRC initiatives such as, ‘You can sit with me’
  • Buddying older students with their younger counterparts
  • ‘Student of the Week’ awards
  • A student passport system that rewards students who, ‘Engage, Connect and Grow’
  • School Positive Behaviour Learning (SPBL) Est 2023

Anti-bullying policy

Sydney Catholic Schools rejects all forms of bullying behaviours, including online (or cyber) bullying, by maintaining a commitment to providing safe, inclusive and respectful learning communities that promote student wellbeing for learning. Staff at Sydney Catholic Schools are committed to employing wellbeing strategies that allow for a healthy school environment where bullying is less likely to occur.

If your child is experiencing bullying of any kind, or you have a wellbeing concern, we have a number of support services available for parents/carers and students, as listed below.
