Support Structure

07-March-17

Each student is assigned a Class Teacher. The Class Teachers take a special interest in the progress and welfare of the students in their class. They serve as a link between School Administration, Year Head and Deputy Principal, ensuring the observance of school discipline.

Each Year Group is assigned a Year Head who oversee the welfare of year groups on behalf of the school community. They are intermediaries between Class Teacher and Principal/Deputy Principal and are part of a structure which ensures caring for all students in the year group.

Each first year is assigned a buddy from a Senior class who maintains a constant link with the student and is a great support to them in their school life.
