The College’s Dean of Pastoral Care works closely with House Coordinators and Home Room teachers to ensure all students are in an environment where they feel safe, secure and loved. Fortnightly Pastoral Care lessons tackle issues such as self-image, cyber safety, resilience, safe partying and community building. The program:
- Fosters a sense of belonging for each child
- Actively promotes acceptance of the individual and individual differences
- Encourages responsibility
- Implements a Peer Support Training Program where Year 10 students assist Year 7 students making the transition to secondary school education
- Is based on a vertically grouped House System so that students benefit from the interaction of working together across year groups
Two College registered psychologist are available to support and advise students in dealing with the various dimensions of adolescence, school and family life, and where necessary, to refer students and their families to other support agencies.
Rosebank College’s Anti-Bullying Campaign
The College joined the fight against bullying in March. On this day many schools around Australia took part in the National Day of Action Against Bullying and Violence. Each student had the chance to sign a pledge to
indicate that they do not stand for any type of bullying.
