Friendly Schools and Families

It has been an extremely eventful year in our pastoral care programme. The whole school has worked its way through a 12-month review process in order to capture and align various programmes running throughout the College.

Friendly Schools Plus has now grown to be explicitly taught in both the Junior School and now the Middle School. The two campuses have also been involved in the second year of a three-year survey looking into anxiety and bullying prevention.

2015 also saw the five social and emotional learning areas become part of the Physical Education reporting process and the pastoral care team of Miss Penny Hooper, Reverend Anne Wright and Mrs Daniela Jasper continue to ensure the boys at Scotch College enjoy a safe and socially inclusive experience.

The new playground and many new clubs have helped to reduce bullying incidents, as the boys are busy burning off excess energy and sharing in new and exciting opportunities.

Circle Time with Mr Stewart and Miss Hooper has also offered a new layer of communication and reflection amongst both the students and the staff.

I look forward to working with you and your son in 2016 and wish you a safe and enjoyable Christmas break.

Mr Warwick Norman

Friendly Schools and Families Coordinator
