Social & Emotional Learning (SEL)
The wellbeing landscape of St Scholastica’s Catholic school incorporates all aspects of school community life from students’ physical, intellectual, moral, social, emotional and spiritual wellbeing and development to the safe and supportive environment in which their learning will flourish. St. Scholastica’s prides itself on catering for all students in our care. Personal Learning Plans are devised to cater for the individual learning and emotional needs of students.
We support our students through the following programs:
- Student Leadership

- Community Partnerships
- Drug Education

Our Chaplaincy program is all about looking after the personal needs of students, not just their academic needs, through the provision of general spiritual and personal advice. A trained counselor supports the emotional wellbeing of students by providing pastoral care services and strategies that support the of the broader school community.
Christian Meditation and Mindfulness are an important part of our practice at St Scholastica’s. Mindfulness is a special way of paying attention that can help the students cope with everyday life or deal with tough times and build a resilient mind. Mindfulness provides great benefits for the students’ physical and mental health.
