Student Wellbeing

Student Wellbeing2020-09-09T01:44:20+00:00

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.

At St Raphael’s Catholic Primary School South Hurstville, student wellbeing is at the heart of everything that the school community undertakes. Within a caring Catholic environment, we endeavour to meet the personal, social and spiritual needs of students, staff and their families. We pride ourselves on recognising, nurturing and enriching each person as a whole and unique individual.

Special events are also held throughout the year to promote wellbeing and personal growth, such as Family Week.

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.
