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.

Bully Busters

This program involves 36 Stage 3 students who have been trained to resolve low level conflict in the playground and work with students on the development of respectful relationships. Our Bully Busters team provides friendship and support to students who may be lonely or simply wish to have a quieter time on the playground. The passive play area provides a unique area for some of our students with Autism and /or other disabilities. The Bully Busters conduct a chess competition in the passive play area each day. 

All students on the Bully Busters teams are rostered on duty in pairs throughout the week and every break at least 6 Bully Busters are on the playground supporting students and teachers regularly refereeing soccer and football games and well as supervising and clarifying the rules of handball and other games. Recently the Bully Busters produced a training video to show to prospective Bully Busters.The success of this program has led to the formation of a waiting list of students wishing to join the Bully Busters team.

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.

Positive Behaviour for Learning

At our school, we use Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) – a whole-school approach for creating a positive, safe and supportive school climate where students can learn and develop. Our whole school community works together to establish expected behaviours and teach them to all students.

Student leadership

Student leadership helps young people find their voices, participate in decision-making, and understand their rights and responsibilities as active citizens. It helps students have a real impact on their learning and school environment and prepares them to participate meaningfully in their community.

Students can be leaders in the classroom, through their actions in the playground, through their support for others, or their involvement in academic, sporting, cultural or local community events or projects.
