We are committed to ensuring a safe and happy environment for your child.
We support your child’s health and safety through a range of strategies including:
- the behaviour code for students, which outlines the standards of behaviour expected in all NSW public schools
- anti-racism education
- anti-bullying programs
- conflict resolution and mediation training
- peer support
- road safety education
- the Healthy School Canteen Strategy.
For more information, visit the student wellbeing section of the department’s website.
Like all NSW public schools, we promote the healthy development of students through:
- school programs and practices that protect and promote health and safety
- supporting individual students who need help with health issues
- providing first aid and temporary care of students who become unwell or who have an accident at school.
Like all NSW public schools, we provide safe learning and teaching environments to encourage healthy, happy, successful and productive students.
The department is committed to creating quality learning opportunities for children and young people. These opportunities support wellbeing through positive and respectful relationships and fostering a sense of belonging to the school and community.
The Wellbeing Framework for Schools helps schools support the cognitive, physical, social, emotional and spiritual development of students and allows them to connect, succeed and thrive throughout their education.
Holroyd High School has a comprehensive welfare program to support students in their learning. Students are actively encouraged to take responsibility for their own behaviour and learning, and to develop a sense of civic and social responsibility.
The school's welfare team met regularly to discuss welfare issues and develop strategies to assist students. The welfare team also participated in a planning conference to support a whole-school approach to student welfare.
In total, 248 students were supported directly by the refugee assistance schemes, which provide needy students with the basic needs for their schooling. Refugee students received additional support through the school's refugee trust fund, friends of Zainab, and a National Foundation of Australian Women donor trust for refugee girls. Also, 8 former refugee students received support in their university studies.
Intensive English Centre (IEC) students attended many experiential excursions around Sydney and Canberra to introduce them to their new home. Senior students also attended an overnight camp at Morton National Park in June where students developed their awareness of sharing, co-operative living and social skills. IEC counsellors continued support programs, such as settling in and social skills.
Positive Behaviour for Learning
At our school, we use Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) – a whole-school approach for creating a positive, safe and supportive school climate where students can learn and develop. Our whole school community works together to establish expected behaviours and teach them to all students.
