Our School

Student Wellbeing

Student wellbeing is brought to life through the actions, interactions and attitudes of  all community members.

Student Wellbeing is at the heart of everything we do at St Monica’s.  Each student is seen as a gift from God; they are respected as people and given the opportunity to celebrate their individuality.

Our small, inclusive community environment fosters the development of lifelong friendships and family partnerships.  Student wellbeing is brought to life through the actions, interactions and attitudes of all community members.

As a part of our Social Emotional Learning at St Monica’s, we have established three expectations for all in our school community:

we are safe,

we are respectful,

we are engaged in our learning.

These expectations are embedded into life and learning throughout the school.

Teaching staff have undergone training in the Berry Street Education Model (BSEM), a curriculum model that provides practical strategies to enable all students to achieve their social and academic potential.  All classes at St Monica’s explore BSEM content in the five domains of Body, Relationship, Stamina, Engagement and Character,  to support student learning and academic achievement across the curriculum.
