Inter-relationships Pillar


Underpinned by the life of Blessed Frédéric Ozanam, the founder of the Saint Vincent de Paul Society, the Inter-relationships Pillar aims to nurture a caring, compassionate and connected community. In particular, the Inter-relationships Pillar, focuses on structures and processes that influence students’ health and wellbeing by fostering positive and sustainable characteristics that enable students to achieve their best with a sense of belonging and connectedness within the College.

Health and well-being are inextricably linked to students’ motivation, engagement and academic achievement. Therefore, it is essentially that students’ health and well-being needs are strategically and overtly supported and nurtured.

The delivery of Inter-relationship services is framed around four components:

  1. Creating a positive school community, linked to our Catholic faith and Identity.
  2. Building student skills for resilience.
  3. Parent – family – school partnerships.
  4. Support for students experiencing, or at risk of developing, mental health issues.
