Hillbrook’s approach to Student Wellbeing has 3 focus areas: Focusing on Ourselves; Tuning into Others; and Understanding the larger world.
We started expressing these 3 areas in 2020 as Being Brave…Being Kind…Being Involved.
This approach, together with our other enduring principles, has helped to shape our social and emotional learning response to the COVID-19 challenge over the past 18 months.
Hillbrook is about ‘adolescents’ – they are who we want to work with and journey with. And, we are privileged to be part of their lives during this extraordinary time.
If you have any concerns about your child’s learning and/or wellbeing we’ve provided this Who Should I Speak With guide to help you. Or alternatively you can call reception 3354 3422 and leave a message on the dedicated Student Wellbeing line. Your call will be returned by a member of the Student Wellbeing Team.
