Student welfare programs
: St Albans Secondary College provides a safe, secure and supportive environment where students can learn and feel valued and respected as individuals. The school is divided into three sub-schools, each with a team of year level co-ordinators who monitor the academic, social and emotional progress of students by liaising regularly with teachers and parents. The Student Wellbeing Team complements the work of the sub-schools through a range of classroom, small group and individual programs. The whole school approach to welfare and discipline, together with an emphasis on social skills, supports young people in their development into caring and socially responsible adults.
