At Calrossy Anglican School, caring for our students is a high priority. We want each student to feel they are valued as a member of our community. Student Welfare is an integral part of school life. In partnership with parents, we aim to provide a rich and supportive context for the personal, spiritual and social development of each child. Values such as caring for one another, behaving responsibly and demonstrating integrity are actively promoted.
Aside from the supportive interaction in the classroom, our aim is to provide a welfare structure that is accessible and supportive for all stakeholders in our community. The formal structure provides the School Chaplain and his team, the Head of Health and Welfare, the School Counsellor, the Head of Secondary Girls and Boys, and Year Advisors.
For students and families who are experiencing difficulties of any kind, the School Counsellors, Mr. Mark Ambrose, is qualified and experienced. Students may refer themselves, or be referred by staff, parents or other health professionals.
Calrossy Anglican School we recognise that each student is unique. Student opinions are valued and sought, and we endeavour to create an environment that celebrates diversity and nurtures individuals through:
- A shared team approach to education that brings together students, parents, staff and the local community
- Recognition of effort, progress and personal success
- A system of discipline based on mutual respect
- A strong Peer Support program
- A mentor system where individual staff members mentor a small group of students, meeting on a daily basis
