We have a dedicated Wellbeing Team, inclusive of counsellors and passionate teachers who are committed to the wellness of our students.
Our environment promotes students with the sense they belong to a safe and welcoming school.
We strive for our school to be an extension of your family, partnering with our parents and carers to strengthen a positive environment with high quality learning and where children leave the school gates feeling cared and loved for.
This passion is founded on the Biblical truth that all people are created in the image of God and acknowledges that students learn best when they feel safe, valued and well. We believe that God’s intention for His people is to flourish in His world, fortified with the wisdom and character to navigate life’s circumstances.
All aspects of the School’s curriculum is taught from a Biblical perspective, using the God’s Big Story framework, and aims to foster development of key character competencies within students.
Each student in the school has the benefit of connecting with a significant adult who’s focus is on their holistic personal growth, considering their Spiritual formation and social development as well as their academic progress. These staff form partnerships with the parents, supporting each child in building their capacity both academically and interpersonally.
Wellbeing lessons are embedded within the K-12 program, as part of our curriculum enrichment through Personal Learning Labs and Biblical Studies, and are supported through initiatives such as our Student mentoring Program, weekly Chapels, daily Devotions time, camps and excursions.
Focussed time is spent on issues around faith, relationships, leadership and community, whilst also equipping students with study and self-management skills in communication, conflict management, peace-making and resilience.
In order for great learning to occur, students needs to have a strong sense of wellbeing as the foundation for their knowledge.
In the Primary School, class teachers are supported two Wellbeing Section Leaders, whilst in the High School, the each year group has an Advisor leading them. Our School Counsellors are onsite every day, available to support students, families and staff with a range of Wellbeing and psychoeducation issues. Our dedicated Health Centre is run by a team of Registered Nurses and Administration Staff, providing quality and professional health care and advice. Students and families are supported to manage a wide range of injuries and conditions, developing Health Care Plans and working alongside external services when needed. Our School Pastor, Ps. Matt Rau is onsite two days a week, playing a key role in the Spiritual growth of students through our Chapel program and lunch time LIFE group.
The teachers at PCS are the most loving and caring people. The sheer time and effort they put into our education allows us to strive for excellence. Additionally, I love the environment of chapel and the sense of community it creates between our grades.
PCS is so special because of the loving culture and community that the student and teachers bring everyday. Our chapel time is really inspiring, we feel a ongoing support from all out teachers and a genuine care for our education. Our teachers want to see us succeed and prepare us for life.
