Student Wellbeing and Pastoral Care
Parents are strongly encouraged to communicate with the teaching staff, home room teachers, Year Level Coordinators 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.
In addition, our Head of Welfare & Child Safety Officer, Ms Vanessa Wannis, and Educational Psychologist, Dr Kevin Quin, are always available for students and parents to meet with.
The student is placed at the centre of all educational and wellbeing thinking at the School. 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 with a safe social and learning environment and that they came home happy.”
