Student Behaviour Management
At St Helena's we have used a variety of ways to successfully create environments which:
- are supportive of individuals and groups with special needs
- are conducive to worthwhile learning,
- enhance a sense of belonging and
- demonstrate a caring concern for the well-being of all of its members.
However, there are times when a student will be confronted with personal and social problems which manifest themselves in behaviours which are:
- either disruptive to the teaching and learning program,
- disrespectful of school rules and codes of conduct, and/or
- harmful to the well-being and security of other students.
In this context, the staff of St Helena's ensure that disciplinary measures and sanctions are approached not as merely punitive actions but as concerted attempts to foster responsibility for actions, and to both change and heal destructive behaviours and breaches of recognised and accepted codes of behaviour.
