At Rostrevor, we understand that student wellbeing underpins everything else. A boy that is understood, nurtured and supported to overcome challenges has the best chance of fulfilling his academic potential.
The modern boy has a lot to deal with from social and personal challenges through to academic pressures. Rostrevor's emphasis is to ensure every boy finds his place and feels safe and supported so he may learn and grow with confidence.
In essence, a Rostrevor boy has a team of people looking out for him and standing by him, which starts from the top and is reinforced by many layers of teachers, student leaders and professional support workers.
Led by Principal Shana Bennett and Deputy Principals Frank Ranaldo and Nicole Laube, Rostrevor puts the wellbeing of every student above all else. The College employs four dedicated Directors of Student Wellbeing each with a specific focus - Junior, Middle, Senior Years and Indigenous students. This approach ensures no student falls through the cracks and acknowledges that boys face varying challenges as they progress through their school journey.
Ms Siobhan Paley is an experienced and dynamic educational leader who has held a number of leadership roles in the Catholic Education system.
Mr Bill Trewartha is a great educator and mentor with a passion for cricket and is well liked and respected by the younger teenage cohort he supports.
Mr Evan Pezos has a firm-but-fair approach that is respected by our senior students and encourages them to be the best they can be. He has a passion for soccer and a great pride for Rostrevor and every student that walks through its gate.
Che Murray has great experience in youth work and in supporting Indigenous students from remote and regional communities with their learning and overall wellbeing.
For boys requiring a little more intensive activity to boost their well-being, our Resilient Kicks initiative is a 20-week program of non-competitive physical and social experiences that combine resilience and coping strategies with fun and physical activity.
Zip-lining at Tree Climb was a great finale to the Resilient Kicks program which has been building confidence, friendships, fitness and resilience among our Middle Year students under the guidance of our Director of Wellbeing Middle Years Bill Trewartha and Counsellor Mason Somerville.
Ei-Pulse is an online tool for measuring the week-to-week wellbeing and engagement of students. It tracks the wellbeing of individual students so that the school can respond to those who express a need.
It also tracks anonymised student attitudes thus providing weekly data on students’ engagement with learning as well as their social and emotional needs. This process provides staff with real time data enabling us to make informed as well as immediate decisions in relation to how we respond to the different needs of cohorts.
