Zero Tolerance on Bullying
No form of bullying or harassment is tolerated at SGCS. We work together with parents and students to bring about appropriate resolutions, ensuring that the victim is supported. Perpetrators of bullying are also supported to learn about the impacts of bullying and to reform their behavior. Further information is detailed in our Anti-Bullying Policy.
Classroom Teachers undertake pastoral care for students in Infants and Junior School. In Middle School students’ pastoral care is overseen by Core Room Teachers. In the Senior School pastoral care is undertaken by our Year Advisers. These dedicated teaching professionals oversee the academic, social and emotional lives of the students in their care.
Our Student Support Team offers strong intentional support services to students across every educational stage. Through a collaborative approach between student, parents, teachers and our Counselling Team we address the needs of the whole child. We are committed to nurturing every student to ensure that they reach their God-given potential.
A team of professional psychologists, based on campus, work collaboratively with students, parents, staff and our Student Support Team to address any issues relating to social, physical and emotional wellbeing.
As professional psychologists, they are qualified to undertake psychometric tests which assist in identifying the specific learning needs of students.
