We acknowledge that our young people live in an increasingly complex world and we’re aware of our responsibility to help them negotiate any difficulties that might befall them. To that end, we staff a highly functional Wellbeing Centre, where students have access to youth workers and social workers. We offer personalised intervention programs and a range of other supports that give our students the best chances of educational success.
In addition, the Hub is staffed from 8.30am to 5.00pm Monday to Thursday and 8.30am to 3.30pm on Fridays. This is a place where students can ‘hang out’ during break times, access teacher and trainee support after school in Homework Club, and undertake Supervised Study during the lesson-time. Healthy snacks are available in both the Hub and the Wellbeing Centre.
Reset and Return space
The Reset and Return space is a non-punitive space to help students manage their Zones of emotions (feelings/energy/states of alertness).
The Reset and Return space provides a safe place for students to proactively maintain a positive sense of wellbeing by giving their nervous systems a chance to relax. Whilst in the space staff will work with students to support them to use the tools accessible to regulate their emotions, with the aim of getting them ready to learn so they can return to class.
The Reset and Return space will also be used to run targeted programs based on the identified needs of students.
