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 Christopher’s Catholic Primary School Panania, student wellbeing encompasses everything that the school community does within a caring Catholic environment to meet the personal, social and spiritual needs of students, staff and their families. We pride ourselves on recognising, nurturing and enriching each individual as a total and unique person.

Special events are also held through the year to promote wellbeing and personal growth, such as How U Doin Week and U R Strong.
