Like all NSW public schools, we promote the healthy development of students through:

  • school programs and practices that protect and promote health and safety
  • supporting individual students who need help with health issues
  • providing first aid and temporary care of students who become unwell or who have an accident at school.

Student wellbeing

Like all NSW public schools, we provide safe learning and teaching environments to encourage healthy, happy, successful and productive students.

The department is committed to creating quality learning opportunities for children and young people. These opportunities support wellbeing through positive and respectful relationships and fostering a sense of belonging to the school and community.

The Wellbeing Framework for Schools helps schools support the cognitive, physical, social, emotional and spiritual development of students and allows them to connect, succeed and thrive throughout their education.

Seasons for Growth

Seasons for Growth is a Grief & Loss Program.

This is an early intervention, preventative program for students who have been affected by a change in their life. The change has occurred because of a death of someone close, or a separation / divorce within the family.

Children look at seasons that change in their life and are taught strategies to cope. Change is normalised and their feelings associated with change are validated.

For more information regarding availability and registration keep an eye on the school Newsletter.
