At Calrossy Primary, caring for our students is given a high priority. Each student is made to feel valued as an individual, and as a member of our school community.
We place a focus on caring for one another, and caring for ourselves. Our priority is the wellbeing of students, their families, staff and others within our community.
The academic, social, emotional, spiritual and physical needs of the children are cared for by the classroom teacher and the extensive welfare support offered at the school. Within the classroom, caring staff provide genuine pastoral care, and work with each child to teach them skills such as resilience and flexibility, so that they can “bounce back” from the challenges of life.
For students and families who are experiencing difficulties of any kind, support is offered through the Welfare team. The team consists of School executive members, School Counselling staff and Learning Support teachers. Students may refer themselves, or be referred by staff, parents or other health professionals.
Our School Chaplain and Assistant Chaplains also work within the school community offering support and advice and fostering Christian values in the school.
