Wellbeing Programs

Each Wednesday, Period 3 is dedicated to Wellbeing. Students move through a cycle of:

  • The Principal’s Assembly
  • House Assemblies
  • Tutor Group Time
  • Wellbeing Sessions (Year based).

House System and Tutor Groups

Each student in the College belongs to one of six Houses and a Tutor Group within the House. Tutor Groups are vertically streamed and have students from Year 7 to 12. Tutor Groups are a little family within the College and each student stays with her Tutor Group each year.

Tutors and House Coordinators are the primary contacts for any wellbeing matter facing a student.

More information of the Houses can be found on The Houses page.
