Wellbeing

Students learn best in an environment where they feel safe and where their basic needs are met. As part of our collaboration to care for your child, the College has a system in place that works to ensure a culture of sensitive care prevails within the College community.

1. The primary point of communication with the College should, for specific matters, be at the level of your child’s Classroom Teacher.
2. Wellbeing matters should be directed to your child’s PCG Teacher.
3. If the matter cannot be resolved at this level, please contact the appropriate Leader of Wellbeing or the Head of Department.
4. Should your enquiry not fit into the outlined pathways, please contact your child’s Leader of Wellbeing who will guide you accordingly.

We are fortunate to also have School Counsellors, Career Advisors and Learning Support Co-ordinators who can offer you assistance. Please click on the links below to access the appropriate staff contact details.
