Student Well-being

At Calvary Christian College we are committed to equipping and empowering our students to be emotionally, physically, intellectually, socially and spiritually resilient in preparation for the real world.

Our students are taught the importance of respect for themselves, each other, and those in authority through a range of extra-curricular activities such as camps, sports and creative arts pursuits.  

Guidance and support is provided by a dedicated Chaplaincy Team, Classroom/Pastoral Care Teachers, Year Level Coordinators and Student Leaders/Mentors who encourage our students to honour commitments, stand firm on their beliefs and become an influence for good in their world.

All Australian schools are safe, supportive and respectful teaching and learning communities that promote student well-being.

Pastoral Care Team

In line with the National Safe Schools Framework and supported by our strong Christian foundation, the College is committed to providing all students with a supported and connected school culture to help them become the best they can be.

Every Calvary team member is part of our Pastoral Care network, with classroom teachers being the first to connect with your child on a daily basis.  Our dedicated Pastoral Care team, including Chaplains and Student Welfare Officer, oversee the support programs offered to students and work with the Principal and teaching staff to develop and maintain a positive and encouraging College environment.

Chaplaincy Team

The College Chaplaincy Team are a wonderful group of people committed to supporting your child emotionally, socially and spiritually.

The team facilitates a range of activities and programs designed to complement other support services at the College.  While our Chaplains are available to offer general support to all students, the College also employees a Student Welfare Officer who is able to provide a greater level of support and advice to parents, linking them to external services where required.

Our Chaplaincy Team are committed to providing opportunities for all of our students to connect with the message of Christ and to experience the loving nature of God.  Our Chapel services are a great way for students to hear the word of God and worship together.

The College acknowledges the assistance of the Australian Government Department of Education Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR) under the National School Chaplaincy and Student Welfare Program (NSCSWP) in funding our Chaplaincy Team.

Student Welfare Officer

The role of the Student Welfare Officer at Calvary is vital in responding to some of the concerning issues our students are faced with each and every day.  Children may face challenges as the result of transitions, difficulty with academic progress, struggles with relationships and situations at home and with their family life may also present as a concern for them.  Our Student Welfare Officer is dedicated to personally meeting with students who have presented with heightened concerns so that we may work with parents to develop a plan of support.

Therefore encourage and comfort one another and build up one another.
