The student wellbeing program is a best practice services model and underpins student success in teaching and learning.

In our selective environment, there are high expectations of academic performance placed on students across the school community.  Led by the Head Teacher, Wellbeing, a team of year advisers, counsellors and learning support staff assist students develop resilience and emotional wellbeing and a strong sense of justice.  Individual support is offered where required.

Our innovative and custom built wellbeing program maps the needs of our adolescents as they mature and includes a variety of year camps, presentations and support from outside providers.  Outside providers, both government and non-government, give our students useful links they can access outside school.

Students welcome motivational guest speakers; Brainstorm theatre productions; High Resolves leadership program; Beyond Blue Roadshow, and participate in the Crossroads and Peer Support, amongst many other activities.  Year 12 are mentored by volunteer staff, and Year 10 have an academic adviser program to help them make career choices based on their personal strength and interests.

A purpose built software program enables us to track the wellbeing and engagement of all students via data generated in each of the semester reports.

The school is proud to be a White Ribbon school, and campaigns for an end to violence against women, as well as: supporting RUOK? Day, a nationwide event held each September where all Australians are encouraged to start a conversation with a friend and check in on their wellbeing.
