Our philosophy is based on the belief that each student’s personal wellbeing is fundamental to their educational progress.

This belief is supported by such things as the student management and welfare program, the Student Code of Conduct and the Bullying and Harassment policy, all of which are implemented in a fair and consistent manner so that students feel safe and supported. The College implements School-Wide Positive Behaviour Support. This is a philosophy and practice of recognising the importance of positive relationships among all members of a school community for the purpose of enhancing learning.

The following phrases best sum up the philosophy and practice that lie at the centre of the program:

"Believe in Learning"

"Have the Right to be Safe"

"Show Respect for Self and Others"
