At Our Lady Help of Christians School, Student Welfare is central to everything we do. It is actively demonstrated through what we refer to as Pastoral Care for all the children in our care. It is a fundamental commitment that is taken on by all staff.
Core components of our Student Welfare delivery:
Student Wellbeing Leader who works at the school two days per week
“Big Buddy” Program for all Prep students
Student Welfare Support Team that meets twice a term
regular access to health professionals, eg: - special education advisers - child & educational psychologists - counsellors - speech pathologists - school Nursing service
Whole staff Case conferences on individual students in need
Individual Learning Plans for students with special needs
