Student Wellbeing

At St Aloysius we employ a whole-school approach to Student Wellbeing, ensuring that it is a core element of our Learning and Teaching program.

At St Aloysius we understand that learning, wellbeing and faith are inextricably linked and as such we employ a whole-school approach to pastoral care. We understand that girls do well when they feel known and valued. Our academic staff work closely with a strong network of support staff to encourage each girl to achieve her best.

As a Mercy school, we aim to develop resilient, well-grounded, compassionate and strong young women who hold dear the values of Mercy Education; we actively promote the integrity and care of each person and encourage respect for diversity. Within a Restorative Practice Framework we focus on community, relationships and healing.

As well as having expert staff, including a College Counsellor and Pastoral Leaders, we offer a range of programs to support the wellbeing and academic progress of each girl.

 

Transition

Moving to secondary school is an exciting milestone. St Aloysius College‘s unique TLC Program ensures that girls and their families are supported at this exciting time, making friends and  becoming valued members of our community well before they begin Year 07.

Mindfulness Program
Our students learn the art of mindfulness. After each lunchtime, teachers run a mindfulness session for about 5 minutes at the start of the lesson. Also lunchtime sessions on mindfulness are carried out for those students who wish to participate in a longer session.
 

Year 12 Mentor Program

Our Year 12 students are allocated to a small group of students with a Senior Staff Mentor.  In order to maximise the outcomes for our Year 12s, these groups meet regularly in order to discuss the progress of each girl and ways in which the College may provide extra support.

Home- School-Partnership

At St Aloysius College, we place great importance on the home-school partnership. In addition to Parent Teacher Student Interviews, our Learning Management System allows students/parents/guardians to receive regular feedback regarding the academic progress of their daughters.

Regular Parent Forum Sessions are facilitated by expert speakers on a range of topics such as Raising Resilient Girls, Positive Parenting and How to Keep Your Daughter Safe In The Digital World.
