Student Wellbeing

Scots All Saints College prides itself on supporting students to reach their full potential through outstanding pastoral care and a strong sense of community. Every student is recognised as an individual and is provided with the opportunity to build their confidence and resilience, to enjoy school, to be challenged and to grow as individuals as they journey through the College.

Strong relationships, supportive teachers and an inclusive culture combine to create a caring and nurturing environment where students have the space to explore, learn and grow. We are fortunate to have a very strong community where the School and parents work collaboratively. Positive Psychology has also been introduced in the context of a Christian world view to promote wellbeing, positive relationships and a life of meaning for our students.

Scots All Saints College has a comprehensive Wellbeing Program that ensures every student is cared for so that they can thrive and grow into strong and connected young adults.

Our Student Wellbeing program aims to:

  • Support and care for our students as they grow and develop from childhood to adulthood
  • Teach students pro-social attitudes
  • Assist students to attain skills to deal with conflict, disappointment, failure and other emotions
  • To build self-esteem and self-efficacy
  • To give students the knowledge and skills to deal with anxiety, stress and depression
  • To build self-confident people who flourish

Referring to our team

If you have a wellbeing concern about your child, we encourage you to first talk to their Core Teacher or Team Leader, who will work with you to best support your child.

How to refer

Referrals for students from Preparatory to Year 12 referrals can be made by teachers, parents or boarding staff. Once the referral is made, it is then reviewed by either Mr Jackman (for Junior School students), Mr Adams (for Senior School students) or Mr Le Couteur (Boarding School). All suitable referrals are then passed onto the Psychology Team who decide on the best action.

Note: If a student is in Year 10, 11 or 12, they can self-refer directly to the Psychology Team.
