Wellbeing is integral to learning excellence, good health and life success

Melbourne Archdiocese Catholic Schools

At Sacred Heart Girls’ College, we recognise that wellbeing is a critical life skill. It is an essential ingredient so students may be empowered and adaptable life-long learners, build strong connections, experience genuine engagement and realise positive learning outcomes. 

Through explicit programs, student and community initiatives and partnerships with families, we nurture positive relationships and genuine opportunities for students to grow, actively participate in their own and others learning and contribute to their own learning community and broader society.

Wellbeing for Learning Program

Explicit and informed teaching of social emotional learning in ways that are developmentally appropriate, meaningful and relevant forms the basis of the Wellbeing for Learning Program. Collaboratively developed, evidence-based and flexible, this program is delivered by the Homeroom teacher and builds student self-understanding and capability.

College Counsellors

There are times when students need more specialised support. Our College counsellors are experienced in supporting students with emotional, social, personal and school based issues. Within the integrated wellbeing approach, College counsellors work with Year Level Leaders, Deputy Principal – Students, parents and carers and community agencies to provide the care and support each young person needs.

Building Relationships Across the School

Students benefit from relationships and positive role models across the different age groups. A strong sense of community, belonging and care is nurtured through student activities and programs, including: House activities, interest-based clubs, Big Sister Little Sister program, sports, arts, student leadership and more. Students contributing, building relationships, leading initiatives and having a voice build a strong, vibrant and resilient community.

Parent/Carer Resources

Parents face many challenges in raising young people. SchoolTV is an online resource designed to empower parents/carers with current information and realistic and practical strategies.

Student Leadership

Euphrasie Barbier believed that we all have special gifts and talents that ought to be put to the service of others.

Based on Christ’s teaching and modelling, the College community, including student leaders, seek to act as servant leaders demonstrating empathy, commitment to others, high levels of awareness, stewardship, high values, respect and an ability to listen to others. Recognising their responsibility to others, student leaders strive to build a strong, respectful, inclusive and engaging faith-based College community.

As representatives of the student body, student leaders have the privilege and responsibility of communicating with their peers and College staff and representing student voice in a range of leadership portfolios.

Leadership portfolios at Sacred Heart Girls’ College include:

College Captains
Deputy College Captain: Faith
Deputy College Captain: Social Justice
Deputy College Captain: Arts
Deputy College Captain: Sport

Homeroom is a deliberate point of connection where each student engages socially and pastorally with her peers and Homeroom teacher. The Homeroom teacher is a key support person for the students and the first point of contact for parents and carers.
