SUPPORTING COMMUNITY WELLBEING
The wellbeing of all students is at the heart of Sydney Catholic Schools, enabling a learning environment which promotes and provides for the spiritual, physical, cognitive, and social and emotional growth of the entire school community.
Wellbeing is best promoted in a safe and supportive school environment, and in Sydney Catholic schools wellbeing is characterised by positive relationships, resilience, the opportunity to maximise strengths and high levels of satisfaction, and connectedness with learning. The links between learning and wellbeing are well researched and are clear.
The responsibility for enhancing and promoting student wellbeing is shared by all in Sydney Catholic Schools. School communities set the direction of their own student wellbeing priorities locally.
The Sydney Catholic Schools’ Student Wellbeing Team, a multidisciplinary team of professionals, is available to provide additional support for schools across all areas of student wellbeing.
