Wellbeing Team

Redlands College places a high priority on Student Wellbeing, with staff providing an environment of care and support for our students.  As a Christian school, everything we do is faith based as we aim to assist our families by providing spiritual, social, emotional and physical wellbeing.

The College has established a team of staff who connect with and mentor students across each year level.  Deans of Year and Directors across Junior, Middle and Senior Schools work closely with students to provide a nurturing and compassionate place for students to be themselves, whilst learning and growing.

A variety of formal and informal programs have been established to meet the needs of each individual child to intentionally help them realise their strengths and apply God's word to their daily life.  Students meet daily in groups, either within year levels or in a small pastoral care group which fosters bonds across multiple year levels.  Two Counsellors are available for confidential support and guidance for students, whilst our Christian Formation Coordinator and Chaplains oversee programs and groups throughout the school that promote Christian Living. 

Additional teams working together as part of Student Wellbeing include Learning Enrichment, Career Pathways, Behaviour Management and Sick Bay.  The Wellbeing Team meet weekly to continually ensure we are providing the best possible care an support to each student.

Since joining Redlands College in 2012, I have worked within the Middle and Senior schools to facilitate and enhance learning experience as a learning support teacher and secondary English teacher, I have gained insight into the learning of students with learning differences from both teacher and advisor perspectives. 

In 2016, I completed a Masters in Educational Studies through the University of Queensland, majoring in Learning Diversity.  I believe strongly in holistic education and am eager to continue working with students, staff and families to explore meaningful learning and fulfil students' full potentials in a context of high expectations, personalised support and Christian community.
