The structure of student support begins with every student being placed in a Homeroom. Homerooms give students a link to their peers and their Homeroom Teacher.
The Homeroom Teacher
The Homeroom Teacher is the first point of contact for communication from parents or staff about a particular student. This communication may be to share a success, a concern or essential background information about the student. The Homeroom Teacher has a pivotal role in the advocacy, connectedness and care of each student in their Homeroom group.
This smaller group within the year level provides a ‘home base’ and a daily opportunity to connect, communicate and share. Being part of a Homeroom provides a sense of belonging and supports students in forming trusting relationships and making connections with their peers, their teachers and the wider College community.
A strong wellbeing structure and comprehensive support staff and processes provide additional support for students with specific and complex wellbeing needs.
