Relationships between people, and partnerships within communities, encourage students to connect, grow and flourish.
At St. Margaret’s we believe regular school attendance is key to improved education and health outcomes.
Positive engagement with schooling enhances academic and wellbeing outcomes for children and young people. We believe that when students attend school regularly they are in a better position to build positive relationships that enhance their sense of self and their relations with the people and groups around them.
St. Margaret’s promotes this sense of self and nurtures positive relationships between teachers, peers and the wider community through the delivery of evidence based programs and explicit teachings of concepts such as;
- Zones of Regulation
- Social Thinking
- Character strengths
- Growth Mindset
- School Wide Positive Behaviour Expectations
Health & Safety Management
At St Margaret’s, we encourage authentic ‘student voice’ and believe that every individual student has the capacity to develop their leadership skills. We believe all students can develop leadership skills and that their words and actions can positively influence those around them. To develop and cultivate these skills in our Year 6 students, we focus on leadership traits such as empathy, responsibility, and adaptability.
Student leadership roles include School Captains, House Captains, Student Action, Sustainability and Social Justice leaders.
The purpose of the Student Action Team is to be the representative voice of students and to identify, plan, promote and implement a variety of school improvement initiatives that benefit our school and the local community.
