We believe a good education focuses on the development of the whole child. Our principals, teachers and student support and well-being team work together to foster each childs’ social, emotional and academic well-being.
In primary school, homeroom teachers are responsible for ensuring each child has the level of pastoral and emotional support they need, while in secondary school, advisory teachers, who students meet with each morning, are responsible for the delivery of a dedicated pastoral care programme. Advisors also assist students with goal setting, time management, exam practice and study skills.
Student support and well-being
Our dedicated student support and well-being team consists of a school psychologist, counsellors, learning support teachers, university advisors and nurses.
Recognising the need for a holistic approach to student support, the team run programmes across the school year to help students develop the skills and strategies needed to proactively manage their own well-being. These include:
Sunshine visits with a counsellor. Designed for new students, these visits help students understand who to go to for support, and help our counsellors monitor how students are adapting to their new environment. Primary students meet as a group, so they’re introduced to other new students in their grade.
Weekly meetings with teachers and the student well-being committee to monitor students’ individual goals and/or progress.
Ongoing education programmes and seminars for both students and parents.
