STUDENT WELL-BEING

At St Damien’s Catholic Primary School we believe all students have the right to learn and feel happy in a safe and secure environment. In order for this to occur it is important that all students, parents and staff understand their rights and responsibilities. These are outlined in our St Damien’s Catholic Primary School Codes of Conduct.

This page is a collection of resources to help all members of our community gain clarity as to the roles of students, parents and staff, and also provide a means for our school members to understand their pathways and options if they feel the need for clarity and support.
