HOLROYD HIGH SCHOOL


Holroyd High School’s priorities include student-centred learning, a
curriculum based on student needs, teaching methodologies to support students
of non-English-speaking backgrounds, programs to build and value all students

Welfare and personal development: The school’s welfare and pastoral
care program supports students in their learning. Students are actively
encouraged to take responsibility for their own behaviour and learning. The
three main platforms of the school’s welfare and discipline policy are “Respect
for self, respect for others and responsibility for my actions”. The school’s
welfare team consists of counsellors, Year advisers, STLA staff, welfare team
supervisor, ESL teachers and deputy principals. The school also has the
assistance of community liaison officers (language) who assist in contact with
parents. Peer support, peer mediation and peer tutoring programs provide
students with the opportunity to improve personal relationship skills. A
database is used to record and monitor off-standard behaviour, and
communication with parents regarding attendance and school functions is through
an SMS messaging system. A levels merit system operates, starting with merit
cards and moving through Bronze and Silver levels to Gold merit awards.
