At Star of the Sea, your child will learn life skills through sport, music and extra-curricular activities. Their understanding of compassion through social justice will hold them in good stead for the rest of their lives. We encourage all of our children to develop the concepts of responsibility and positive self-image so as to become a member of a caring community.
We believe that children learn best in a caring, accepting environment and we provide a range of support programs for them, both in and beyond the classroom.
We have a strong emphasis on early intervention for students who need some additional support with the learning program and time in class, whether that is help with reading, speech pathology, occupational therapy or those students with special disabilities.
At Star of the Sea we know that social and emotional well-being leads to happiness and success.
While classroom teachers guide and support all students with day to day issues, such as friendship issues, anxiety, bullying and more, our school counsellor provides a more specialised support to students and parents, and can include issues such as family change and grief.
The support is provided in consultation with teachers, parents and leadership. Students can self-refer or be referred by teachers or parents.
