Every person in our school community has the right to feel safe. Any action which threatens this safety, causing physical, psychological or sexual harm is considered to be extremely serious.
Any reports of harm are to be referred directly to one of the student protection contacts:
However, please contact the Principal, APRE or APA anytime. Student Protection posters are in every classroom with Student Protection Contacts clearly labelled on them.
Clear guidelines and procedures have been formalised by the Diocese of Toowoomba. Each teacher is familiar with the Student Protection Policy and relevant guidelines / procedures. The school has recently implemented the Safe Start Program enforced by the Diocese of Toowoomba. These are available for viewing from or discussion with the principal.
