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 John’s Catholic Primary School Auburn we believe there is a link between student wellbeing and effective learning. We liaise with external agencies such as Catholic Care, Auburn Diversity, Mercy Connect, the St Vincent de Paul Society, NSW Family and Community Services and psychologists to ensure our families have access to the support network they need. As teachers and staff, we are continually developing skills to embed social and emotional learning into the curriculum. 

Anti-bullying policy

Sydney Catholic Schools rejects all forms of bullying behaviours, including online (or cyber) bullying, by maintaining a commitment to providing safe, inclusive and respectful learning communities that promote student wellbeing for learning.
