College expectations are framed to encourage respect, support learning and highlight that an individual's responsibility to a community comes at the expense of individual freedoms. It is difficult to pre-empt every situation, so we encourage the following practice:
Pastoral Care Team
- Deputy Principal of Pastoral Care: Kim Walters
- House Heads: Gerry Peters (Dillon), Adam Aherne (Griffin), Ross Hubble (Lyons), Jo Hoare (MacKillop), Hector Lencton (Pastoral Care Leader)
- Social Workers: Lynda Beaven, Donna Jordan
From 2012 the College has formally adopted a Schoolwide Positive Behaviour Support (SWPBS) process to nurture a happy community where each person is valued and encouraged to do their best.
What is the Learning Support Team?
The Learning Support Team (LST) aims to support all students in reaching their full potential. This includes students who have barriers to their learning and those who are Gifted and Talented. A key feature of the Learning Support Team is the facilitation of collaborative planning between teachers, support staff, parents and students. This service is delivered in a range of ways from 1:1 tuition, small group work, and can include participation in Literacy and Numeracy Catch-Up or extension programs.
School Based Programs
Students learn basic techniques for the Djembe Drum while developing interpersonal skills and building relationships.
