Student Wellbeing

The welfare team promotes:

  • a supportive and safe learning environment within the school.
  • PBL or Positive Behaviour Learning (This underpins both welfare and learning within Elderslie High School)
  • The school merit system which encourages students to participate and achieve their personal best. The system also recognises participation and excellence across the school in all facets of learning and in extra curricula activities. Students receive recognition with merit cards which they hand to their assistant Year Advisers for collection and verification. There is a tiered system of merit levels and recognition which is acknowledged bi-annually at Recognition Assemblies.

Elderslie High School adopted the Stymie platform in Term 4, 2020 as a way for all students to report any cases of bullying, whether they were impacted directly or were aware of it occurring to another student. Each week during DEAR, all Rollcall classes are reminded of the website and encouraged to use it to report their concerns.
