Student Wellbeing & Pastoral Care
The Core Values of the Anglican Schools Commission and Cobram Anglican Grammar School are:
Living by Gospel values
Pursuing high standards in all things
Demonstrating fairness, compassion and conviction
Respecting self, others and our planet
Acting with honesty and openness
Promoting social inclusion and celebrating difference
Parents are strongly encouraged to communicate with the teaching staff, the home room teachers, and the Heads of School where queries arise over day to day issues. Parents' finely tuned understanding of their children can provide the School with invaluable insights and teachers are often able to offer useful strategies for at home.

The student is placed at the centre of all educational and wellbeing thinking at the School, and we pride ourselves on offering each student every opportunity to achieve to their best of their ability. The wellbeing team assists students and families wherever need exists.
Principal, Mr Keith Willett, is passionate about student wellbeing at Cobram AGS.
“As a parent myself I wished for my children to go to a school that has a safe social and learning environment and that they came home happy, I want to encourage our young people in our school to prepare themselves to be productive local citizens wherever their path may lead them”. - Keith Willett
In 2021 Cobram AGS will be moving to a structure that includes two sub schools which will be:
Junior School (Foundation to Year Six)
Senior School (Year Seven to Year Twelve)
In addition, we are have also created the following student management and wellbeing roles.
Foundation to Year Two - Mrs Jacinta Robbins
Year Three to Year Six - Miss Emily Willmott
Year Seven to Year Nine - Mr Jon O'Dwyer
Year Ten to Year Twelve - Mrs Carolyn White
The creation of these roles will add a further level of wellbeing support for our students. The YLC’s will support Homeroom Teachers, Heads of School and the Wellbeing Team to provide wellbeing support for students across our school.
