The wellbeing of our students is a priority and we work proactively to develop, maintain and encourage a caring and orderly learning environment for our students.
The welfare of students in our care is the responsibility of all teachers as we know that good emotional health correlates powerfully with strong academic development.
At Lavalla Catholic College we have Wellbeing & House Leaders in place to guide your child through his or her learning journey.
St Paul’s Campus
Each Wellbeing Leader is responsible for a particular year level; 7, 8 or 9. They will work with homeroom teachers to monitor students’ emotional health and offer support and guidance when needed. The focus of the support is to ensure that each Homeroom teacher develops a strong relationship with the small cohort of students and their families and is the first point of contact to assist with behavioural management issues.
Year 7 Wellbeing Leader – Ms Natalie Macpherson
Year 8 Wellbeing Leader– Mr Brett Scholtes
Year 9 Wellbeing Leaders – Ms Jasmine Santamaria
The role of the House Leader is to lead Student Wellbeing, general and specific areas of pastoral care, liaise with parents as well as maintain discipline and College expectations within the House. The role of the House Leader is to ensure the well-being of each student within the House and ensure that each is catered for in keeping with the vision and mission of the College. This includes the necessary support and initiatives to enable each student to develop a sense of identity and personal worth and to contribute to the overall good of the community.
