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.

The welfare and student support staff are a dedicated and compassionate team that include: 

  • year advisor 
  • careers advisor 
  • school learning support officers
  • school counsellor 
  • supervisor of students 
  • school engagement officer 
  • senior executive 
  • regional home school liaison officer.

The welfare team works closely with the school learning support team to ensure students are strongly supported throughout all areas of school life. 

The priority areas of the schools welfare team include:

  • attendance
  • behaviour modification 
  • anti-bullying 
  • recognition of student achievement 
  • development of positive relationships 
  • transition 
  • healthy and safety.

The welfare team is committed to strengthening the link between home and school through regular communication. We encourage parent and community participation and welcome the involvement and input of Bass High School affilates.
