Like all NSW public schools, we promote the healthy development of students through:

  • school programs and practices that protect and promote health and safety
  • supporting individual students who need help with health issues
  • providing first aid and temporary care of students who become unwell or who have an accident at school.

Student wellbeing

Like all NSW public schools, we provide safe learning and teaching environments to encourage healthy, happy, successful and productive students.

The department is committed to creating quality learning opportunities for children and young people. These opportunities support wellbeing through positive and respectful relationships and fostering a sense of belonging to the school and community.

The Wellbeing Framework for Schools helps schools support the cognitive, physical, social, emotional and spiritual development of students and allows them to connect, succeed and thrive throughout their education.

To find out more about how we support wellbeing at Greystanes Public School, please visit our wellbeing section.

Social and emotional learning

Throughout the year we teach social and emotional learning (SEL) in all classes, using the friendly schools plus program.

Lessons incorporate the five key social and emotional learning skills of:

  • self-awareness
  • self-management
  • social decision making
  • relationship skills and
  • social awareness.

SEL skills (PDF 573KB) has a table which identifies the skills the lessons aim to develop in students.

Positive Behaviour for Learning

At our school, we use Positive Behaviour for Learning (PBL) – a whole-school approach for creating a positive, safe and supportive school climate where students can learn and develop. Our whole school community works together to establish expected behaviours and teach them to all students.

Student leadership

Student leadership helps young people find their voices, participate in decision-making, and understand their rights and responsibilities as active citizens. It helps students have a real impact on their learning and school environment and prepares them to participate meaningfully in their community.

Students can be leaders in the classroom, through their actions in the playground, through their support for others, or their involvement in academic, sporting, cultural or local community events or projects.

Student representative council at Greystanes Public School 

The student representative council (SRC) is made up of students from Years 1 to Year 6. The members of the student representative council are selected by their peers to represent the class and be in line of communication with all members. There are two representatives from each class. Meetings are held fortnightly with stage one meeting independently from stages two and three. At meetings, students have the opportunity to discuss and raise ideas for school improvement as well as discuss and implement student led initiatives. The student representative council executive is made of our school captains and senior councillors. They attend a fortnightly meeting as well as an executive meeting to plan for and evaluate projects the student representative council are leading.
