Student Wellbeing

Camperdown College provides a safe and supportive community of lifelong learning where our school values of caring, respect, honesty, excellence and responsibility are valued by all.

The College recognises that before students can engage in productive learning, they must feel safe, secure and happy. The College provides a friendly, safe, cooperative and purposeful environment in which learning occurs. The focus is on personal excellence where students learn to take responsibility for their learning.

 

An essential part of building this environment is our curricula and extracurricular activities which aim to:

 

  • Promote a strong sense of belonging to the school community

 

  • Provide personal support for individual students

 

  • Monitor student progress at all levels

 

  • Support students at risk

 

Learning and Engagement Leader:

 

In Prep - Year 6, the classroom teacher is responsible for the wellbeing of each student. However, at each year level beginning at Year 7, we have a Learning and Engagement Leader who is responsible for:

 

  • The overall wellbeing of the students in their care
  • Providing a link between home and school
  • Following up lateness, uniform, progress and behaviour issues

 

Careers:

 

Our Careers teacher, Mrs Suzanne Maskell welcomes enquiries from students and parents and works closely with all concerned to ensure that a vocational education program is tailored to meet students’ needs.

 

Student Wellbeing Officer:

 

Our Student Wellbeing Officer is Miss Angela Brown who works cross campus, spending two days a week at each.

 

She is responsible for providing an effective link between the College and outside agencies, liaising with staff, parents and relevant community groups to provide counselling and referral for students and to work with staff to establish programs and curriculum support materials.

 

School Nurse:

 

We have the services of our Secondary School Nurse, Ms Claire Blackstock, two days per week at the Senior Campus. Claire works closely with our school health and wellbeing programs. She provides one on one assistance to students who experience health problems and conducts student and parent workshops.
