At St James', our goal is to support the holistic development of every student
We strive to create a safe and caring community where each student can thrive and develop a strong sense of self.
Inclusivity is at the core of our values. We are committed to being open and responsive to the diverse needs and abilities of all our students. By understanding their unique personalities, interests and cultures, we create an environment where diversity is embraced and a love for learning flourishes.
Our comprehensive pastoral care program is seamlessly integrated into our daily operations and curriculum. We prioritise the academic, emotional, social, physical and spiritual wellbeing of each student. Through various programs, we empower our students to build essential skills such as confidence, resilience and capability.
A supportive and valued environment
We organise school events and mateship programs to encourage inclusivity, camaraderie and friendship. Animals often visit the School community and provide companionship, teaching empathy and responsibility. We strive to create a supportive and valued environment for our students, where they not only learn and grow but also feel happy, supported and valued.
Access to support and guidance
Wellbeing is of utmost importance for our Junior School students as they navigate through their education and personal development. To ensure that students have access to the necessary support and guidance, our school provides valuable wellbeing resources, including the assistance of School Chaplains Reverend John Taylor and Reverend Marie Aitken, Occupational Therapist Kelsey Hayes and School Counsellor Teresa Gastevich.
