Like all NSW public schools, we promote the healthy development of students through:

  • school programs and practices that protect and promote health and safety
  • supporting individual students who need help with health issues
  • providing first aid and temporary care of students who become unwell or who have an accident at school.

Student wellbeing

Like all NSW public schools, we provide safe learning and teaching environments to encourage healthy, happy, successful and productive students.

The department is committed to creating quality learning opportunities for children and young people. These opportunities support wellbeing through positive and respectful relationships and fostering a sense of belonging to the school and community.

The Wellbeing Framework for Schools helps schools support the cognitive, physical, social, emotional and spiritual development of students and allows them to connect, succeed and thrive throughout their education.

Positive Behaviour for Learning

At our school, we use Positive Behaviour for Learning – a whole-school approach for creating a positive, safe and supportive school climate where students can learn and develop. Our whole school community works together to establish expected behaviours and teach them to all students.

Corrimal High School is involved in an initiative called the positive behaviour for learning (PBL) program and has identified three core values for its main focus. These three values are safety, respect and responsibility. The program was successfully launched late in 2009, with the St. George Dragons in attendance as they support the regional implementation of the initiative. The PBL process aims to:  

  • develop school-wide values and behaviour expectations
  • develop lesson plans and teach expectations of behaviour – for each school setting
  • develop and post expectations visually throughout the school
  • embed values and expectations throughout school community
  • reinforce expected behaviours
  • develop teacher Skills - positive correction and active supervision.
