Childhood and the teenage years are periods of intense personal growth. At St Aloysius College we understand the developmental stages of social and emotional learning. We provide programs and structures to support our students on their journey.
Our school is shaped by the tradition of Mercy which reaches out to others in a spirit of loving kindness. Our students are encouraged to be hospitable and compassionate and to respect the worth of others. This happens explicitly through our religious and social skills programs and informally through opportunities for involvement in our community and social justice activities.
Year level coordinators, home room teachers and subject teachers are vigilant about student welfare. A school counsellor and a social worker provide professional support to students and links with outside agencies if needed. Parents are welcome to contact the school to discuss any special needs.
Opportunities are provided for students to develop leadership skills.
Basic social skills are taught in the Primary School and developed through the teenage years through various support programs.
