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.

The college is committed to helping students learn and grow towards a full humanity, embracing individual gifts and talents and points of personal challenge and growth. This is supported by a well planned Pastoral Care calendar which addresses many aspects of student wellbeing, resilience, mental health and student voice. In embracing this full humanity, the college seeks to align its pastoral wellbeing focus with its identity as a Catholic school in the Marist tradition, and imbeds liturgies to develop a sense of family spirit and presence. The pastoral focus of the college ultimately aims to encourage and guide students in their learning and growing.
