Student Wellbeing

Student well-being is at the heart of our school and fits in with our Franciscan spirituality - the acceptance and appreciation of difference.

For our school, love of others and respect for others is critical to our community. It is also an important part of a child's development.

It's about developing a healthy mindset and following the respect that St Francis had for himself, others and the environment.

Special Programs

At St Francis of Assisi school, learning is more than just a classroom activity.  We have a whole range of programs designed to challenge and test our students and help them make the most of their potential.  These programs include:

  • Football Academy
    Specialist teachers who come into school and allow students to have 40 minutes or so a week to hone their skills in football.
  • What's the Buzz?
    This social skills enrichment program teaches children how to think and relate socially. It is a highly practical role-play and play-based program which  targets everyday themes - how to greet, make and keep friends, fit in, read one's own emotions, read the feelings of others, deal  with competition and cope with worry, frustration and disappointment more constructively.
  • Program Achieve.
    This program aims to develop young people’s social and emotional capabilities, including: confidence, persistence, organisation, getting along and emotional resilience.
  • Circle Time.

We are always investigating opportunities to develop and implement programs that meet the needs of all of our students.
