Our College’s behaviour system is a reflection of Catholic Social Teachings and embodies how we wish our community to live their lives, develop a moral compass, and be the person that God created them to be.
We wish to build resilience, independence and communication skills within our students, and believe that our behaviour system fosters positive relationships and builds self esteem.
Students are assigned CST house points for the behaviours that they demonstrate, all of which link to the Catholic Social Teachings. Students, parents and staff can monitor their CST house points through Class Charts.
