Student welfare programs: A college-wide welfare and discipline policy establishes clear guidelines for behaviour and encourages students to take responsibility for their actions in a supportive environment. The college operates transition programs from primary to secondary school, from Year 10 to the senior campus and from school to the workforce or further education. This ensures that the changes are made as smoothly and constructively as possible. A student support centre on each campus provides advice on a wide range of emotional, interpersonal, financial and learning problems. There is also a careers and work education centre on each campus offering advice on study skills, careers, course planning and plans for further education.
