Pastoral Care & Wellbeing
At St Michael’s we promote being… A People of Harmony, A Place of Challenge.
We endeavour to be “God like” in our relationships with each other and the environment. The rainbow is a sign of God’s promise to God’s people.
We strive for excellent behaviour from all in our community, at all times. To ensure this endeavour is successful, we currently have St Michael’s Whole School Positive Behaviour Support Program in place. The program supports, encourages and congratulates achievements and positive behaviour of the students. Social and emotional learning is incorporated into classroom experiences.
Explicit teaching of our overarching rules – Be Safe, Be Responsible, Be Respectful and Be a Learner.
Students are awarded with Gotcha Cards for displaying positive behaviour, social and interpersonal skills, and doing the right thing. Students are recognised and celebrated for their achievements on an honour board and special lunch with the Principal. Harmony Awards are also presented at each assembly.
