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.

At Marist College Kogarah, our work is founded on the person of Jesus Christ and we seek to model his care and compassion for others. We believe in the dignity of every person created in the image of God and redeemed by Christ.

We are committed to providing safe and supportive environments which nurture the physical, spiritual, intellectual, moral, social and emotional wellbeing of all students and staff in our community. We hold firmly to the belief that all students and staff have a right to be safe, respected and valued in an inclusive environment.

The college places a strong emphasis on student wellbeing and encourages parents to maintain close contact with their son’s teachers and Year Coordinator. Students in each Year Group are assigned to Homeroom Groups, each of which operates under the care and guidance of a Homeroom Teacher.

Students are encouraged to seek assistance and advice from their Homeroom Teacher on academic and wellbeing matters. Each Year Group has an appointed Year Coordinator who is ultimately responsible for the overall wellbeing and learning of all students in the Year Group. Marist Mates, is the college’s Peer Mentoring Program, which enables senior students to interact with and support the younger students of the college. A college counsellor is on site every day of term time and may be accessed via the relevant Year Coordinator.
