The Gospels are full of examples of Christ going out of his way to underline that his promise of salvation is inclusive, it is open to all, and he models this for us by associating himself with the marginalised of His community.
At Salesian College Sunbury, we take our responsibilities around child safety very seriously. We endeavour to create a culture where no one feels marginalised, where no one has to endure harassment and bullying. As we continue on our journey to ensure our Child Safety implementation is a living document I wanted to remind families the importance of letting the College know if a student feels unsafe at the College, without being informed of concerns it is hard for a school to respond. There are various ways students can let us know if they feel unsafe. Letting a trusted teacher know- who will then pass it on to a HL, letting the wellbeing team know, or filling the online form via schoolbox.
A reminder all students are to be in full summer uniform from Monday 7 October (Day 1 of Term 4) Please check the uniform over the upcoming holidays to make sure everything is ready to go. Dress length needs to knee length, shoes polished, Blazer dry cleaned, hair styled in a way that is acceptable at the College. The following is example of the College expectations. Year 12 students are able to wear the Year 12 ‘Hoodie’ to and from school in Term 4.
