Leadership and personal development programs are also key elements of the wider program.
STUDENT WELLBEING PROGRAMS
The pastoral care needs of students are catered for through the current House System with support provided initially by each student’s Learning Mentor. These Learning Mentors meet with the students for 20 minutes every day throughout their educational career. Learning Mentors have the support of their House Leaders who have access, along with the students, to a full time Wellbeing Coordinator at each campus. All students participate in ConnectEd (Pastoral Care) once a fortnight. These sessions focus on the promotion of health and wellbeing.
