At Mary MacKillop Catholic Regional College, community and caring for others is paramount. We have a strong focus on student and staff wellbeing, supported by a shared set of values and programs in order for everyone to feel safe, valued and well cared for throughout their school years and beyond.
Feeling comfortable at school and being happy and healthy has a direct impact on each student’s capacity for optimal learning – and for them to be the best they can be in their chosen field. Equally, enjoying school and being engaged in learning influences a student’s well-being – in particular their confidence and resilience.
The relationship between well-being and learning, therefore, is critical to the development of the whole person. This is why, at Mary MacKillop, we focus on the social, emotional, psychological, spiritual, moral and intellectual development of our students. Our students are supported and motivated to develop their strengths, to grow and learn from challenges and complexities, and to develop positive relationships as their foundation for learning.
A commitment to fostering growth and enabling students to flourish underpins Wellbeing at Mary MacKillop. Teachers and student support services staff work together to help students learn effectively and develop positive attitudes and behaviours.
At Mary MacKillop we will embed a culture of student safety and well-being by:
- Encouraging the empowerment and participation of all students in enhancing their well-being and safety.
- Educating our community about student wellbeing and safety.
