Student Wellbeing

Our Wellbeing program is based on respect: respect for one’s self, respect for others, and respect for the environment. Our aim is to develop the whole school community to attain a sense of perspective, balance and social justice. We believe this will enable students to reach their full potential as global citizens.

Student Wellbeing

Fort Street emphasises a team approach to student wellbeing and provides counselling, peer support, overnight camps and mentoring as strategies for supporting students’ personal development and welfare needs.

In addition, the Student Representative Council is active in advocating issues relevant to student needs.

The Wellbeing Team

Our wellbeing team is led by the Head Teacher Wellbeing and consists of:

  • Counsellors
  • Year Advisers
  • Deputy Principals
  • Learning Support Staff

The Year Advisers, School Counsellors and Deputy Principals are key personnel in the welfare team and are available for students needing advice or assistance on any issue. There are also a range of student initiated and student led activities across the school.

Our Learning Centre Support staff provides outstanding support to individual students. The Learning Support Team co-ordinates individual education plans for a wide range of students.
