Our School

Wellbeing at JSRACS



Wellbeing is central to the John Septimus Roe Anglican Community School experience. We believe an exceptional education for life not only develops a student’s academic skills and attributes but also their emotional and physical wellbeing.

A Proactive Approach to Student Wellbeing

With an established Pastoral Care team for every phase of learning, we focus on the holistic importance of our student’s social, emotional, physical and academic well-being. We understand that when our students feel well within themselves, they confront obstacles and challenges with confidence and believe in their capacity to solve problems.

Wellbeing in the Junior Years

Feeling comfortable at school and being happy and healthy directly impact each student’s optimal learning and confidence and resilience. The relationship between wellbeing and learning, therefore, is critical to the development of each child at JSRACS.

Wellbeing underpins our academic learning and is woven into all school experiences. Our goal is to provide a proactive environment to support students in developing the skills and mindset to actively manage their wellbeing.

Within the Primary School the Pastoral Care Team includes:

  • A Director of Pastoral Care
  • Classroom Teacher
  • Specialist Rock and Water programme
  • Access to the onsite Counsellors and Psychologists

"Our aspiration is for JSRACS students
to be architects of their lives..."

Wellbeing in the Senior Years

We believe the wellbeing of our students underpins their academic success, and that a holistic approach to knowing each student and her family is vital in providing our students with the support they need to succeed.

The wellbeing of our students is multi-faceted and dynamic. We recognise that as our students move through the Middle School and into Senior School, their wellbeing needs continue to change. 

Within the Middle and Senior School the Pastoral Care Team includes:

  • A Director of Pastoral Care for both the Middle and Senior Schools
  • Pastoral Care Tutors
  • Year Coordinators
  • Specialist programs such as Trailblazer and Rite Journey
  • Access to the onsite Counsellors and Psychologists
