Lyndale Secondary College places a high emphasis on student engagement and wellbeing and offers a vast array of programs and services to support our students. We recognise that student engagement and wellbeing cannot be separated from student learning and understand that for students to maximise their academic potential they need to feel safe, happy and be connected to and engaged in their school lives.
The Wellbeing Team oversees the school wellbeing programs and co-ordinate referrals. Our support network includes DEECD Psychologists, a school based Psychologist, a School Community nurse and two counsellors who are available to see students at the school.
Lyndale Secondary College is committed to engaging our young people with their school and their education through a variety of programs which support our students to attend school, participate in class and enjoy learning. It is stressed to the school community that involvement by parents and students in the ‘non-academic’ aspects of the school will significantly contribute to the students’ academic success. At Lyndale we believe in the development of the whole child and a philosophy of ‘more than just marks’ is stressed. We work collaboratively with our community networks to build student resiliency and both the academic and the co-curricular programs are designed to promote students’ learning and engagement.
All students are involved in the Lyndale Supportive Relationships policy through a range of activities that promote and collectively develop our commitment to providing a safe and supportive environment for all members of the community. Relationships are at the core of everything we do at LSC and we use Restorative Practices for behaviour management and conflict resolution.
