Leadership is integral to lifelong learning. All students should have the opportunity to demonstrate and develop leadership skills. We prioritise student wellbeing and provide an inclusive environment for all.
At Churchill Primary School, we believe students need to be at the centre of their learning and should have true ownership of their school. Students are given opportunities to have input into decisions, voice concerns and make suggestions to improve their school, as well as becoming more aware of the wider community.
Leadership is integral to lifelong learning. All students should have the opportunity to demonstrate and develop leadership skills. Student leadership roles include School Captains, House Captains, Student Representative Council members and Respectful Positive Learner Team members.
Our School Captains are the leaders of our school and are supported by two Vice Captains. The School Captains and Vice Captains play an imoprtant role in school activities and representing the school at events like ANZAC Day. They are important role models that younger students can aspire to.
The role of the House Captain is to encourage all students to participate in house activities and house events. They are chosen from grade 5 and 6 students.
The SRC work together to be the voice of their peers. They organise, lead and fund any charity or school events throughout the year. The SRC attends regular meetings and reports back to the school at assembly. Students from grades 4, 5 and 6 are eligible to be on SRC.
Members of the RPL Team will ultimately be the ambassadors of our core values across our school. Students from grades 4, 5 and 6 are eligible to be on the RPL Team.
Our school prioritises student wellbeing. Our staff are committed to building positive relationships with students. We implement the Berry Street Education Model, which is a proactive approach to teaching emotional regulation. This model is embedded in everything we do and is also explicitly taught in all grade levels. Churchill Primary School has highly skilled staff who support students with learning differences and are dedicated to providing an inclusive environment for all.
Our Primary Welfare Officer (PWO) offers support to students who require additional assistance with social/emotional issues.
The Primary Welfare Officer works with parents and teachers to support students in need or at risk.
The PWO also supports the school's attendance initiatives and assists families to link in to support agencies as needed.
Our PWO provides the following programs/assistance:
We run a free breakfast program every morning for our students. The program runs from the Canteen, starting at 8:15 am to 8:30 am and provides a healthy and nutritious start to the day. It is run by our Primary Welfare Officer and Community members.
