We commit to providing safe and supportive environments which nurture the wellbeing of all students and staff in our community, and hold firmly to the belief that they have a right to be safe, respected and valued in an inclusive environment. We know that when students are happy, they are more engaged with their learning.

Schools benefit from wellbeing initiatives and pastoral care support through Sydney Catholic Schools – in areas such as anti-bullying, positive behaviour, student counselling, refugee support and child protection – which range from universal support for all students, to targeted interventions for students with complex social and emotional needs.

At St John Vianney Catholic Primary School Greenacre, we believe that wellbeing is integral to learning. We construct environments that enable students to be healthy, happy, engaged and successful. 

At our school students know that they are a learner in a safe, inclusive and respectful environment. We are committed to creating quality learning opportunities supported by the School Wide Positive Behaviour for Learning (SPBL) framework.

Our school community actively participates in programs such as Be You, Friendly-Schools Plus, Christian Meditation and wellbeing workshops to develop good mental health. Our school counsellor contributes to student wellbeing by providing specialised support and intervention services.


Anti-bullying policy

Sydney Catholic Schools rejects all forms of bullying behaviours, including online (or cyber) bullying, by maintaining a commitment to providing safe, inclusive and respectful learning communities that promote student wellbeing for learning. Staff at Sydney Catholic Schools are committed to employing wellbeing strategies that allow for a healthy school environment where bullying is less likely to occur.

If your child is experiencing bullying of any kind, or you have a wellbeing concern, we have a number of support services available for parents/carers and students, as listed below.
