Pastoral Care

St Columbkille's implements the SPB4L framework, which emphasises school-wide systems of support.  These include proactive strategies for defining, teaching and supporting appropriate student behaviours.  Positive behaviour supports are implemented for all students, across all school settings, by all staff, at all times.  This results in creating and sustaining school-wide, classroom and individual systems of support, to improve students' academic and social outcomes.

SPB4L is an initiative by the Wollongong Catholic Education Office that aims to maximise learning for all students through a focus on consistency, shared responsibility and explicit teaching.

The behaviour expectations at our school are at the core of our SPB4L model. Our statement of expectations is


“At St Columbkille’s, we value learning by being respectful, responsible and safe.”
