Student Wellbeing

Wyndham Central Secondary College promotes ‘School Wide Positive Behaviours’. This is a whole school approach that encourages a safe and orderly environment where students can concentrate on their learning and teaches the values of Respect, Cooperation and Excellence.

Each classroom has a copy of our School Wide Positive Behaviours matrix and the skills are explicitly taught and referred to during class time. We not only have high expectations in the academic area but of students behaviours towards themselves and others.

Student and Parent Services:

At WCC all staff are committed to supporting your child in their growth and wellbeing. We are also committed to parents working with us as a team to support your child’s emotional, physical, social and academic health. Each tutor teacher is the first point of contact for your child or parent should there be any concerns. Each year level also has an ES staff member who is also available for any assistance.

We also have more targeted interventions for specific areas of need. Our wellbeing team consists of:

  • 2 Assistant Principals and 1 Leading Teacher all trained in the area of student wellbeing (Bryan Woollard, Yvonne Harvey, Connie Faranda)
  • 1 Wellbeing coordinator (Sandy Pine)
  • 1 School Nurse available 2 days a week on Mondays and Tuesdays (Trish Worthington)
  • 1 School Chaplain available 2 days a week on Wednesdays and Fridays (Claire Roberts who is also a trained social worker)
  • On-psych representative who works at the College performing targeted counselling that can be accessed with a mental health care plan from your GP
  • 1 Speech Therapist who works at the College with students who have specific speech and language difficulties

There are also support activities and a variety of programs that run throughout the year according to student needs:
