“Education cannot be neutral. It is either positive or negative; either it enriches or it impoverishes; either it enables a person to grow or it lessens, even corrupts him. The mission of schools is to develop a sense of truth, of what is good and beautiful.” (Pope Francis)
What is Student Wellbeing?
Student Wellbeing is promoted through:
Children who are resilient, positive, confident and able to establish meaningful relationships are better placed to achieve enhanced learning outcomes.
The wellbeing of students at St. Agatha’s is at the heart of all aspects of a child’s life at school:
Teaching and Learning – ensuring all children have access to programs that meet their intellectual, social and emotional needs.
A safe, contemporary, predictable and supportive environment – physical resources and learning spaces that enhance the opportunity for children to learn in stimulating surroundings.
A focus on their Social and Emotional development – curriculum goals to enhance students’ relationships with each other, their families and the broader community.
A Whole School Approach to Positive Behaviour Support
The characteristics of our whole school approach to positive behaviour include:
Our whole school's Three School Wide Expectations are based on the Catholic values and complement our school motto Courage, Faith and Love.
In a spirit of inclusivity, we aspire to live the Gospel, creating a sense of respect, responsibility and safety while focusing on being problem solvers.
These expectations are embedded into the curriculum and in the day-to-day school life of students, staff and parents.
Everyone is encouraged to model and enact these three expectations as active participants in the St Agatha’s Primary School community.
