Student Wellbeing

Students are better prepared for learning when they are healthy, safe and happy, therefore, student wellbeing is the responsibility of all staff working in a whole school context. Student learning cannot be separated from wellbeing. Helping students to learn effectively and to develop positive attitudes and behaviours are goals that have long been shared by teachers, student support services, staff and parents at St Gabriel’s.

Developing the wellbeing of our students is central to our role as a school, and is reflected in our whole school philosophy. A culture of positive reinforcement and encouragement permeates all facets of our school and reflects our Vision statement that forms the basis of our school’s philosophy. The social, emotional and physical wellbeing of our students is pivotal to their success at school and in their future lives. Physically, socially and emotionally healthy students are happy, able to deal positively with life’s challenges, experience a sense of connectedness with the school and others in our global community.

We believe in the importance of implementing prevention and intervention strategies which promote positive behaviour within the school. At St Gabriel’s we endeavour to equip our students with the knowledge, skills and values to enable them to face the challenges of the twenty-first century with confidence.
