The college provides an extensive response to student wellbeing and welfare needs.

A fundamental support mechanism of the college is our ‘House’ structure with each student assigned to one of four Houses. This provides students with a stronger sense of identify and belonging to the college.

We believe students learn best with a teacher who knows them well and most students are taught by the same group of teachers from their House.  Each House is supported by a member of the Principal Class, a Leading Teacher, Student Coordinators and a Secondary Teacher Assistant (STA).

A key aspect of the House model is the allocation of a Home Group Teacher, with each student assigned to a Home Group. The Home Group Teacher stays with their group from Year 7 to Year 12, developing a close understanding of each student’s developmental learning needs and is a consistent and familiar point of contact for parents.

The college also has a range of specialist supports available for students, consisting of:

  • Student Welfare Coordinators
  • Youth Worker (2 days a week)
  • Doctors in School Program
  • Program for Students with a Disability (PSD) Coordinator
  • Integration Support Aides
  • Managed Individual Pathways (MIPs) Coordinator
  • Language Support Program—supported by a Speech Pathologist
  • Health Promotion Nurse
  • Visiting Psychologists
  • Visiting Social worker.
