Our purpose is to develop the whole person-mind, body and heart.
The heart of education is the education of the heart and, as such, the very core of a caring school and morally mindful education is a well-structured and considered wellbeing program that builds student capacity across all areas.
Students learn the necessary skills to be part of a team in a positive community. This model is a systems approach which is based on delivering evidence based social-emotional and behavioural interventions and supports that enhance schools’ capacity to maximise outcomes for all students.
Discipline will be applied in a way that is proportionate to the behaviour and upholds procedural fairness, with an aim to not only respond to the incident but to ensure the best long-term outcomes for all individuals involved.
The college has a no tolerance to any form of bullying.
Our GOAL program, cultivates an environment that supports the physical, social, intellectual and emotional development of every student. Through this program, GOAL mentors build a community that nurtures and respects individual differences and talents, creates a safe and supportive environment and celebrates achievements.
The GOAL program focuses on:
GOAL Mentors are key figures in the delivery of wellbeing programs to students. Each GOAL Mentor plays an important leadership role in the College. Not only do they maintain effective communication between students, their learning area teachers and parents, they also have an integral role in the development of a collaborative culture. They work closely with our Head of Wellbeing to create a structured and supportive wellbeing program. Our Head of Wellbeing is a school psychologist and can provide further supports and guidance to students and families.
The main focus of a GOAL Mentor is the wellbeing of each student in his or her care. The role requires wise judgement, an open mind, a focus on consultation, collaborative problem-solving and team work. GOAL Mentors must do their best to ensure that there is a positive vibe within their group and between them and the students. Students must build trust with the GOAL Mentor, that their views are given consideration, and that they receive honest, concerned and professional care and that there is consistency.
