Student Wellbeing

At Chevalier College the wellbeing of our students is paramount. When we refer to wellbeing we are referring to nurturing five elements: social, spiritual, emotional, academic and physical wellbeing.  We focus on the whole person, not just their academic potential.

We believe that academic and personal success is hard to achieve if a student’s wellbeing is not in balance.  Our academic care philosophy, results in students who whole-heartedly embrace their life choices and, importantly, enjoy their time at high school.

Our educational model encourages and guides students to achieve their full potential and become the best they can be. We meet them where they are and take them beyond where they thought they could get to, always with this wellbeing safety net to support them.

We aim to:

  • Foster values of mutual respect, care, compassion, responsibility and service within our community
  • Provide the opportunity for every student to value themselves, and experience wellbeing and self-fulfilment
  • Allow students to become competent, confident and independent learners within a safe and caring environment, where they will feel empowered to take healthy risks
  • Support optimal learning and development outcomes through a holistic and school-wide approach that assists each student’s personal growth in spiritual, emotional, social, physical and academic terms.

Education for your child is important and regular attendance at school is essential for your child to achieve their educational best and increase their career and life options. We work in partnership with parents and carers to encourage and support regular attendance. When your child attends school every day, learning becomes easier and your child will build and maintain friendships with other children.
