Care & Culture at the College has a focus on the holistic development of young people. At the College we believe if students feel safe, cared for, valued and known, students will be able to learn more effectively. A focus on connection with peers and staff is central to the aims the College has in the area of Care. High expectations of our students drive the Culture of the College. An environment that is disciplined and orderly to support student learning and wellbeing is the outcome of these expectations
Wollondilly Anglican College offers a comprehensive student-care network. Care and Culture Group teachers meet with students daily with a focus on building relationships and maintaining high expectations. These teachers deliver a program that supports student wellbeing, faith development and connection with others. Year Patrons support Care and Culture Group teachers and have oversight of their respective Year Groups. Year Patrons liaise with staff and parents to ensure the needs of their Year Group are understood and promoted through the Secondary Years. A further level of support and expertise is provided by Leaders of Learning, Care and Culture in Primary and Leaders of Care and Culture Secondary. As Leaders of the varying stages, they provide support to students, staff and parents in more significant matters or matters that are referred through Care and Culture teachers or the Year Patron.
