We believe that our school plays an important role in promoting the mental health and wellbeing of the members of the St. Christopher’s School Community. We also understand that student wellbeing is central to learning and teaching and plays a major role in student learning outcomes.

Community and Multiculturalism
At St. Christopher’s there is a strong sense of community and all individuals are valued. The rich and varied backgrounds of our families are promoted, as is a culture of respect and tolerance.
All students at St. Christopher’s school have the right to feel safe and be themselves. Policies and procedures are in place to deal with inappropriate behaviour such as bullying.
At St. Christopher’s school staff members know every child and have a sense of shared responsibility for wellbeing. The support and input of parents is valued and encouraged in this area. A Student Wellbeing Coordinator is supported by a Wellbeing team.
