For more information, visit the student wellbeing section of the department’s website.

Like all NSW public schools, we promote the healthy development of students through:

  • school programs and practices that protect and promote health and safety
  • supporting individual students who need help with health issues
  • providing first aid and temporary care of students who become unwell or who have an accident at school.

Student wellbeing

Like all NSW public schools, we provide safe learning and teaching environments to encourage healthy, happy, successful and productive students.

The department is committed to creating quality learning opportunities for children and young people. These opportunities support wellbeing through positive and respectful relationships and fostering a sense of belonging to the school and community.

The Wellbeing Framework for Schools helps schools support the cognitive, physical, social, emotional and spiritual development of students and allows them to connect, succeed and thrive throughout their education.

Furthermore, our school prides itself on being an 'Anti-Bullying Environment'. Please read our Anti-Bullying Policy and our Student Wellbeing and Engagement Policy to learn more.

Positive Behaviour for Learning

At our school, we use Positive Behaviour for Learning – a whole-school approach for creating a positive, safe and supportive school climate where students can learn and develop. Our whole school community works together to establish expected behaviours and teach them to all students.

Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) was officially launched on Friday 21st February 2014, showcasing our wonderful students demonstrating our values: Respect, Responsibility and Excellence.

Student leadership

Student leadership helps young people find their voices, participate in decision-making, and understand their rights and responsibilities as active citizens. It helps students have a real impact on their learning and school environment and prepares them to participate meaningfully in their community.

Students can be leaders in the classroom, through their actions in the playground, through their support for others, or their involvement in academic, sporting, cultural or local community events or projects.

Student Representative Council (SRC)

The Student Representative Council (SRC) is a body within the school which represents students, promotes their views and their participation in school decision making. 

At GRC Peakhurst Campus, the SRC is made up of elected representatives from each year group. SRC members represent the school at college, district and regional leadership skills development activities and community events.

The SRC represent the voice of students in the school and have an important role to play in the life of the school and the decision making process on many issues that relate to students. They are involved in fund raising for various charities and making improvements to the school environment.  Sponsorship is also provided for students representing the school at sporting and cultural events. 

School assemblies are coordinated by the SRC and meetings are held during roll call. The SRC functions effectively as a forum for students' opinions and liaison between staff and students.

Leadership skills are enhanced by attendance at the annual leadership camp. Members act as role models to the rest of the student body and promote a positive image of our school in the community.

Students don't have to be school captains or house captains to be considered leaders. We encourage our students to be leaders in the classroom and playground, through their support for other students, or their involvement in academic, sporting, cultural or community events and projects.
