We commit to providing safe and supportive environments which nurture the wellbeing of all students and staff in our community, and hold firmly to the belief that they have a right to be safe, respected and valued in an inclusive environment. We know that when students are happy, they are more engaged with their learning.

Schools benefit from wellbeing initiatives and pastoral care support through Sydney Catholic Schools – in areas such as anti-bullying, positive behaviour, student counselling, refugee support and child protection – which range from universal support for all students, to targeted interventions for students with complex social and emotional needs.

At St Charles Catholic Primary School Ryde, we value the development of the whole child and provide relevant resources to parents to support the development of positive wellbeing. Students are encouraged to be active in developing their skills in monitoring the wellbeing of themselves and others. We have a buddy program where younger students have a dedicated buddy to assist them throughout their school journey. Multiple leadership opportunities are provided to follow our school’s Five Expectations. Referral to our school counsellor and other local community resources can be provided when needed.
