At Salesian College, we aim to develop caring, inclusive and effective relationships between staff, students , parents and the community. Wellness practices are focused around our core school values of Community, Learning, Excellence and Faith.
The College has a team of professionals to provide wellbeing support to students to help with personal, emotional, social and relationship difficulties or if they are having trouble adjusting to College life. These include:
They can provide a range of strategies to help students do their best. This service is free and confidential. Referrals to outside agencies are made where appropriate.
Students can go and find out information regarding the day-to-day running of the College and ask for assistance at our Student Hub. It is a central place for all students and can be accessed at any time. The Student Hub is also the meeting place where parent/guardians come to sign out a student who may be leaving the College early on a particular day.
First Aid, staffed by a full-time College Nurse, is also located in the Student Hub.
The College coordinates many Wellness programs and initiatives that are typically targeted to support young people through a particular age and stage of their life. This includes sessions and workshops that are held onsite and run by external youth wellness professionals.
