We commit to providing safe and supportive environments which nurture the wellbeing of all students and staff in our community, and hold firmly to the belief that they have a right to be safe, respected and valued in an inclusive environment. We know that when students are happy, they are more engaged with their learning.

Schools benefit from wellbeing initiatives and pastoral care support through Sydney Catholic Schools – in areas such as anti-bullying, positive behaviour, student counselling, refugee support and child protection – which range from universal support for all students, to targeted interventions for students with complex social and emotional needs.

Wellbeing at Champagnat Catholic College Pagewood focuses on the right of every student to come from a safe and loving home to a safe and loving school. Programs and strategies operate with this goal in mind.

Under the guidance of the Director of Wellbeing, the Wellbeing Team consisting of Year Coordinators, College Counsellor, ATSI support and Homeroom Teachers, promote a calm, positive and safe learning environment which, based on positive education practices, is aimed at assisting students to become relational, resilient, reflective and resourceful learners.

Centred around high expectations and knowing each student as a learner, our structured pastoral programs facilitate the realisation of each student’s potential, at the same time covering wellbeing issues relevant to age groups and context.

In its endeavours, the Wellbeing Team is supported by all staff, parents and local parish and Marist communities to provide students with every opportunity to develop themselves physically, socially, intellectually, emotionally and spiritually.

Anti-bullying policy

Sydney Catholic Schools rejects all forms of bullying behaviours, including online (or cyber) bullying, by maintaining a commitment to providing safe, inclusive and respectful learning communities that promote student wellbeing for learning. Staff at Sydney Catholic Schools are committed to employing wellbeing strategies that allow for a healthy school environment where bullying is less likely to occur.

If your child is experiencing bullying of any kind, or you have a wellbeing concern, we have a number of support services available for parents/carers and students, as listed below.
