Student welfare program

The staff recognises and celebrates student achievement in all areas of the school and community life and provides welfare structures which meet academic, social, cultural, physical and emotional needs of the students. We nurture our students to be responsible and self-directed in a happy and safe environment that is conducive to learning.

Student participation is encouraged in a variety of welfare programs to assist in creating an emotional intelligence and reliance to enable our students to cope with the demands and pressures of living in a modern and ever changing world.
