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.

The school is able to assist students with long or short term health conditions or illness by administrating medications prescribed by doctors.  All request will need to be supported by the parent request for student health suport application.

If you child is unable to attend school due to illness or a family commitment, you must either call the school or submit a digital leave form via the Skoolbag app.  Alternatively, a signed and dated note can begiven to the classroom teachers.  

Students must attend school every day, unless.

.    the student is too sick to leave the house

.    the student has an infectious disease e.g. chicken pox, mumps, measles or whooping cough.  Refer to "Too Sick for School" guideline.


Positive Behaviour for Learning

At our school, we use Positive Behaviour for Learning – 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.
