Welfare

Student welfare in government schools:

  • encompasses everything the school community does to meet the personal, social and learning needs of students;
  • creates a safe, caring school environment in which students are nurtured as they learn;
  • is achieved through the total school curriculum and the way it is delivered;
  • incorporates effective discipline;
  • incorporates preventive health and social skills programs;
  • stresses the value of collaborative early intervention when problems are identified;
  • provides ongoing educational services to support students;
  • recognises the diversity within the school community and provides programs and support which acknowledge difference and promote harmony;
  • recognises the role that the school plays as a resource to link families with community support services; and,
  • provides opportunities for students to: enjoy success and recognition; make a useful contribution to the life of the school; and, derive enjoyment from their learning.

The Mathematics Department uses evidence based techniques and practices from educational research to effectively manage our students. This management approach is consistent and is incorporated into Maclean High School's Student Discipline Policy.
