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.
As a learning community we are committed to making Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Primary School Fairfield a place where love, reconciliation and compassion are evident and where hope is not only dreamed about, but is real and practised.
As a KidsMatter school, we promote a sense of belonging and inclusion in our diverse community. The ‘We Care Leaders’ assist their fellow students that are hurt or upset and model positive social and friendship skills for the younger students. Our school-wide ‘Friendly School Plus’ program promotes and supports resilience and wellbeing in every child. Our values of gratitude, social skills, good relationships and self-improvement are continually developed and reinforced through our Positive Behaviour for Learning framework.
Sydney Catholic Schools rejects all forms of bullying behaviours, including online (or cyber) bullying, by maintaining a commitment to providing safe, inclusive and respectful learning communities that promote student wellbeing for learning. Staff at Sydney Catholic Schools are committed to employing wellbeing strategies that allow for a healthy school environment where bullying is less likely to occur.
If your child is experiencing bullying of any kind, or you have a wellbeing concern, we have a number of support services available for parents/carers and students, as listed below.
