Pastoral Care & Wellbeing

Supporting our students
At St Patrick's, we aim to ensure our children are healthy, happy and socially engaged – all of which can impact on their intellectual capacity and academic achievements.

Positive Behaviours for Learning

At St Patrick’s, our Behavioural Support and Management Policy is based on the Positive Behaviours for Learning (PB4L) framework. The framework seeks to improve learning outcomes for all students through a focus on consistency and personal responsibility.

Online Safety and Anti-Bullying Support

At St Patrick's, we believe every child has the right to learn and grow in a safe and supportive learning environment – one free from intimidation, humiliation and harm – including online. Read more about our school programs, and see our useful links and resources for students and parents.

Counselling and other CatholicCare Services

St Patrick's works closely with CatholicCare to ensure the pastoral needs of all students and their families are supported. We aim to be proactive in meeting the social, emotional and spiritual needs of our students.
As well as having a Pastoral Care Worker employed at the school for two days a week, a CatholicCare school counsellor is available to work with parents and students to support their social and emotional wellbeing.

Parents as Partners in Pastoral Care and Wellbeing

The pastoral care and wellbeing of all members of our community is of the utmost importance at St Patrick's. Parents support this by partnering with the school to maintain a safe, supportive and respectful school environment.
