Social and Emotional Learning (S.E.L.) promotes self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills and responsible decision making. S.E.L. and restorative practices guide students to behave appropriately, develop and maintain positive relationships and enable personal growth.
- Our Buddy program develops relationships across the school. New Foundation students are allocated a Year 5 student as their buddy, during their kindergarten transition visits. The senior children support their buddies through the transition to school and they participate in a range of learning activities together. This special relationship continues throughout Year 1, until the older buddies move on to secondary school.
- Support services such Scope Speech Pathology, Occupational Therapist and a visiting Psychologist provide support for students. Our school also works intensively with student support services through Catholic Education Office Melbourne.
- Transition programs. We conduct intensive transition programs with local kindergarten agencies and pride ourselves on the relationship we have with Alexandra Secondary College in preparing students for secondary education.
