Student Wellbeing

Learning & Behaviour

At Mary MacKillop Catholic College we believe that: 

  • Behaviour is internally motivated 
  • We are responsible for our own behaviour 
  • Every action has a consequence 
  • Behaviour is educative and needs to be taught 
  • Relationships are an integral component 
  • All members of the school community are responsible for implementing the framework 

Setting High Expectations for our College

The Student Wellbeing Framework is designed to facilitate high standards of behaviour, so that the learning and teaching in our school can be effective and students can participate positively within our school community. Our school community has identified the following school rules to teach and promote our high standards of responsible behaviour:

  • Be a learner 
  • Be safe 
  • Be respectful 

College  House Points System 

Under the direction of the Middle Leaders Wellbeing, PC teachers and classroom teachers, students are encouraged to become involved in all aspects of College life. Belonging to a House provides many avenues for students to interact on a social level, to support each other, to learn from each others’ strengths and weaknesses, to develop leadership skills and to actively serve the College and wider community. 

Organised activities that will be included in this points system include but are not limited to Carnivals, Outreach and Spiritual opportunities, Cultural activities, Sporting achievements, Academic effort and success, assisting at College Events; all of which aim to support a sense of belonging and pride in the community.  

The overall aim is to encourage all students to be involved in as much as they possibly can. Everything they do can be attached to the points system so they feel they can contribute no matter what their strengths are.
