Our Pastoral Care Policy consists of two components. One aspect of our policy deals with the welfare and well-being of all students, staff and parents. Our school aims to be a happy and safe environment for all. Teachers develop relationships with all students and families which enables us to care for all our children. The school needs a partnership with home to achieve the best outcome for all students. “It takes a village to raise a child.”
The other aspect of our policy involves discipline. In conjunction with our student body, school rules are determined and levelled consequences determined for breaches of these rules. The consequences for breaking school rules range from minor to major. Parents are contacted in regard to discipline issues. All students are required to take responsibility for their actions and the restorative practice method is used to restore relationships when required.

Student Representative Council
Our Kindergarten to Year Six students elect Student Representative Council (SRC) members from Year Six (two girls and two boys) and House Captains (one boy and one girl from each house). All Year Six students have a buddy in Kindergarten and Kindergarten students who travel on a bus have a bus buddy to support them in the transition from school to home.
Our Years Six to Nine students elect our School Captains (one boy and one girl), Vice Captains (one boy and one girl), and Prefects (one boy and one girl). Students also elect House Captains (one boy and one girl from each house). These students meet regularly with the Pastoral Care Coordinator to discuss various aspects of their role and student needs. Students have a uniform free day on the last Friday of each month to raise money for the school’s sponsored children Darlin Chavez and Dickson Kanyaku or coordinate other fund raisers such as Genes for Jeans, Crazy Hair etc.
