We commit to providing safe and supportive environments which nurture the wellbeing of all students and staff in our community, and hold firmly to the belief that they have a right to be safe, respected and valued in an inclusive environment. We know that when students are happy, they are more engaged with their learning.
Schools benefit from wellbeing initiatives and pastoral care support through Sydney Catholic Schools – in areas such as anti-bullying, positive behaviour, student counselling, refugee support and child protection – which range from universal support for all students, to targeted interventions for students with complex social and emotional needs.
Christ the King Catholic Primary School Bass Hill aims to actively promote and maintain a safe, respectful and responsible learning environment that affirms the dignity of all students, staff and families.
Our Highway Heroes Social and Emotional Learning Program assists students in acquiring the skills to recognise and manage emotions, develop caring and concern for others, establish positive relationships, make responsible decisions and handle challenging situations effectively. Our school counsellor works closely with parents and teachers to assist students in areas of wellbeing.
Through the School-Wide Positive Behaviour for Learning (SPBL) framework, Christ the King aims to provide a sense of belonging and inclusion through positive partnerships with students, staff and parents/carers. SPBL is based on consistent high expectations and provides the opportunity for all students to acquire the knowledge, skills and Gospel values needed to become responsible active Christian citizens of the future.
Sydney Catholic Schools rejects all forms of bullying behaviours, including online (or cyber) bullying, by maintaining a commitment to providing safe, inclusive and respectful learning communities that promote student wellbeing for learning. Staff at Sydney Catholic Schools are committed to employing wellbeing strategies that allow for a healthy school environment where bullying is less likely to occur.
If your child is experiencing bullying of any kind, or you have a wellbeing concern, we have a number of support services available for parents/carers and students, as listed below.
