For more information, visit the student wellbeing section of the department’s website.

Like all NSW public schools, we promote the healthy development of students through:

  • school programs and practices that protect and promote health and safety
  • supporting individual students who need help with health issues
  • providing first aid and temporary care of students who become unwell or who have an accident at school.

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.

Homework survey

We are looking to continually seek feedback around our current practices. Last year we surveyed Years 7 and 8 parents on the amount of homework and assessments their child was receiving. As a result from the feedback we received, teachers have made changes to the assessment calendar, the amount of support students receive with their assessments and we have introduced a new way of communicating task due dates to parents.

We believe there there is still some way to go, therefore your feedback is greatly appreciated.

With your son/daughter please complete the survey monkey.
