Like all NSW public schools, we promote the healthy development of students through:

  • school programs and practices that protect and promote health and safety
  • supporting individual students who need help with health issues
  • providing first aid and temporary care of students who become unwell or who have an accident at school.

Student wellbeing

Like all NSW public schools, we provide safe learning and teaching environments to encourage healthy, happy, successful and productive students.

The department is committed to creating quality learning opportunities for children and young people. These opportunities support wellbeing through positive and respectful relationships and fostering a sense of belonging to the school and community.

The Wellbeing Framework for Schools helps schools support the cognitive, physical, social, emotional and spiritual development of students and allows them to connect, succeed and thrive throughout their education.

Positive Behaviour for Learning

At our school, we use Positive Behaviour for Learning – a whole-school approach for creating a positive, safe and supportive school climate where students can learn and develop. Our whole school community works together to establish expected behaviours and teach them to all students.

Merit awards system

Our school motto is ‘endeavour with courtesy, consideration and commonsense'. The central concept which drives the school is "personal best for everyone". The school merit award system is used to promote our school motto and central concept. This system seeks to identify and reward students who make significant and positive contributions within our school community and who strive for their personal best.

At St Clair High School, it is recognised that all students have the potential to excel in a variety of different areas. It is the responsibility of all staff to reward students on their positive behaviour and it is anticipated that the merit award system will:

  • reward students for sustained effort and achievement of excellence.
  • encourage all students to do better than they did yesterday.
  • develop and maintain a cooperative and supportive atmosphere among teachers, students and parents.
