We commit to providing safe and supportive environments which nurture the wellbeing of all students and staff in our community, and hold firmly to the belief that they have a right to be safe, respected and valued in an inclusive environment. We know that when students are happy, they are more engaged with their learning.

Schools benefit from wellbeing initiatives and pastoral care support through Sydney Catholic Schools – in areas such as anti-bullying, positive behaviour, student counselling, refugee support and child protection – which range from universal support for all students, to targeted interventions for students with complex social and emotional needs.

At Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Primary School Caringbah, we believe that Student Wellbeing is as important as academic success. In order for students to become successful adults, students need to develop a healthy sense of self and be able to develop and maintain positive relationships. 

Our Lady of Fatima takes great pride in the priority given to Student Wellbeing, we have a diverse range of programs and processes in place to cater to all students.
