Student Wellbeing

Pastoral Care


t Port Macquarie Adventist School, we place a strong emphasis on pastoral care and the spiritual well-being of our students. Our chaplain plays a vital role in this by overseeing the running of weekly chapels, leading regular worship sessions in classrooms, and building meaningful connections with our school families.

The chaplain provides guidance and support to students as they navigate the challenges of school life, helping them to develop a deeper understanding of their faith and find meaning in their daily experiences. The chaplain also works closely with teachers and staff to ensure that our students receive the support they need to thrive academically, emotionally and spiritually.

Our chaplain acts as a liaison between the school and the local church community and is available to meet with students and families on an individual basis as needed. We believe that this holistic approach to pastoral care provides our students with a strong foundation for spiritual growth and emotional well-being, helping them to become well-rounded and compassionate individuals.

The Resilience Project


esilience and wellbeing are key factors to ensure a happy and fulfilling future for our young people. This year, we are proud to partner with The Resilience Project to assist our students in their wellbeing journey. This is an exciting program that delivers emotionally engaging programs and provides evidence-based, practical strategies to build resilience and emotional literacy.

Our partnership consists of online presentation, weekly or fortnightly lessons for students, professional development for staff, and a Parent & Carer Hub for you.

In the hub, you will find information about the key pillars of the program, hear stories and be introduced into activities to show how these strategies can support our kid’s learning, development, and also support you as parents and carers.

Throughout this term we will introduce each of the pillars through our newsletter, however, the link opens up the whole portal and access to these automatically in case you want to learn more at your own pace.

This program is an important part of our school’s efforts to look after the mental health of our community. I strongly encourage you to have a look at the program and the parent portal so that you can take the journey with your children.

Child Safe Program

Seventh-day Adventist Schools NSW have made child safety a priority in its response to the new Child Safe Standards. There are 6 public facing documents on the linked website sharing the child safe responsibilities and expectations across our school community. There is an overarching Child Safe Policy driving the other processes and procedures in our schools.
