Student Wellbeing

Students are better able to engage fully with their learning when their social, emotional and physical wellbeing is healthy and they possess a strong sense of belonging and self-worth.

Initiatives and programs

Initiatives and programs to enhance student wellbeing and to meet the individual needs of all students at Durack School are:

  • Focus on the Durack School values of Respect, Responsibility and Integrity

  • A Special Education Program
  • A Youth Engagement Officer and Attendance officer who offer support to families and students.
