The wellbeing of our boys is paramount in the Junior Years to ensure we nurture and develop young 'men for others'. Our boys recognise the need to serve others and are involved in various community activities.
In class, boys are explicitly taught a social, emotional learning program (What's the Buzz) to build emotional intelligence. We ensure our boys feel a sense of belonging by developing respectful relationships and encouraging empathy and resilience amongst peers.
A restorative approach is used to resolve conflict which involves restoring relationships and taking responsibility. Through our leadership programs, our boys are given opportunities to develop their skills through House, community and student-led activities.
Our Inclusive Education department offers the Macquarie Literacy Program for small groups of students who require extra support in Literacy. It is an explicit and systematic reading intervention program.
We also offer QuickSmart which is an intervention program for students struggling in numeracy. Our Inclusive Education program offers individualised support to those students requiring supplementary education.
We are an inclusive community and we believe every boy has the ability to succeed in a nurturing and supportive environment. Boys have access to an on-site speech pathologist, counsellor and psychologist.
