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.

Our school’s motto, “To Love, To Lead, To Shine” along with our REST values of Respect, Empathy, Self-Control and Teamwork promote school wide positive behaviour. Students are taught the importance of resilience, self-control and respect towards others. The students and parents at Holy Innocents’ Catholic Primary School Croydon who are faced with difficult situations are supported by the school’s counsellor.

Specific wellbeing initiatives include:

  • Buddy system between Kindergarten and Year 5 students
  • Positive Behaviour Recognition through awards given each week at assembly.
