student wellbeing

The wellbeing of each student is of paramount importance and this is reflected in all that we do.

Our school believes that all students can learn and that this best occurs where students feel happy, valued and secure. To achieve this, teachers, students and parents are encouraged to work closely together to create a safe and stimulating environment.

The school believes that the physical environment is important in promoting a positive attitude towards learning and self-esteem. Our school outdoor environment fosters this and includes a netball court, basketball court, Junior and senior adventure playgrounds, fitness track, sports oval and rebound wall.

school wide behaviour management (swpbs)

At our school we use SWPBS as a framework to help plan & implement practices, across the school, to improve educational and behavioural outcomes for all students. The SWPBS framework is founded on a positive approach to whole school wellbeing with targeted approaches for students with higher levels of need.

Each class has a negotiated set of behaviour expectations that are visibly displayed for reference throughout the year. SWPBS assists the school to be a positive place for learning & play.
