As our students’ progress through the final years of Secondary School, we place a special emphasis on wellbeing fostering independence and resilience. Dedicated Leaders of Wellbeing for each year group ensure students are valued and supported as individuals.

The academic, social, emotional, spiritual and physical needs of the students are cared for by classroom teachers and the extensive welfare support offered at ֲý. Within the classroom, caring staff provide genuine pastoral care, and work with each child to teach them skills such as resilience and flexibility.

Wellbeing with a holistic focus is a priority at ֲý with a variety of special programs, events and strategies in place to ensure our Senior students receive the support and encouragement they need for success in and out of the classroom.
