At Phoenix P-12 Community College we respect and celebrate the fact that every student is an individual. We aim to provide a healthy, supportive and secure environment for all students as we know that student wellbeing is a critical factor in delivering student learning and achievement.
All students at Phoenix P-12 Community College participate in a Respectful Relationship Education through a range of workshops, guest presenters and the weekly Pastoral Care Program, which aims to teach students how:
- To build resilience.
- To secure respectful relationships.
- To develop strategies to reduce vulnerabilities.
- To build student, school and community connectedness.
- To increase coping skills.
- To equip them for the workplace.
- To prepare them for becoming an active global citizen.
