Promoting health, supporting student health care needs and reducing health risks are important to everyone at our school. We create and maintain a safe school environment by protecting the wellbeing of our students and promoting positive relationships between students.
If your child is being prescribed medication that needs to be taken during the day, please inform us so that arrangements can be made for medication to be administered. Medication should be sent to school in its original packaging with your child's name clearly marked.
Strict safety checks are in place to protect students, including criminal record checks of all permanent and casual teachers. We teach our students to recognise when they may be unsafe and how to get help.
Web filtering technology prevents students from accessing inappropriate material on the internet and email system. Read the information sheet for parents (PDF 328KB). For information in community languages, see Internet access Information sheet.
We teach students about the damaging effects of the sun and promote sun safety practices.
Drug education and understanding responsibility and relationships is taught as part of PDPHE from Kindergarten to Year 10.
The department is committed to ensuring a safe and happy environment for your child. We do this through a range of strategies including:
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.
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 allow them to connect, succeed and thrive throughout their education.
Positive Behaviour for Learning
At our school, we use Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) – a whole-school approach for creating a positive, safe and supportive school climate where students can learn and develop. Our whole school community works together to establish expected behaviours and teach them to all students.
Student leadership helps young people find their voices, participate in decision-making, and understand their rights and responsibilities as active citizens. It helps students have a real impact on their learning and school environment and prepares them to participate meaningfully in their community.
Students can be leaders in the classroom, through their actions in the playground, through their support for others, or their involvement in academic, sporting, cultural or local community events or projects.
