At St Thomas the Apostle there is a strong emphasis placed on supporting the pastoral needs of students and families.
Through our Student Wellbeing Coordinator, our Pastoral Care Team and Counsellors, we endeavour to monitor and support the needs of all in the community. The school also provides the support of a Student Counsellor who is available one day a week to support both students and their families.
Student Well Being at St Thomas is all about care for the child at the social and emotional level.
It is about providing an environment where there is a sense of belonging, acceptance, respect, growth and support for each individual student.
All classes in the school follow the ‘You Can Do It’ program, which progressively develops the student’s Confidence, Resilience, Persistence, Organisation and ability to Get Along. These 5 keys are the foundations of developing a strong Social and Emotional awareness in all students in the school.
