We are committed to ensuring a safe and happy environment for your child.
Following the incident on 17 September at Southern Cross University – Lismore Campus, we would like to share Headspace’s mental health support resource (PDF 100.52KB) for students, teachers and school staff.
We support your child’s health and safety through a range of strategies including:
- the behaviour code for students, which outlines the standards of behaviour expected in all NSW public schools
- anti-racism education
- anti-bullying programs
- conflict resolution and mediation training
- peer support
- road safety education
- the Healthy School Canteen Strategy.
For more information, visit the student wellbeing section of the department’s website.
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.

Self-Help Programs for Mental Health
Young people often use the Internet for help and support, as well seeking help from parents, friends, teachers and counsellors. Online self-help programs can help to prevent and manage mental health problems such as depression and anxiety.
The ANU e-hub team provides online self-help services that can be used free of charge and anonymously 24/7. All programs are based on the best available evidence and can help you fi nd out about preventing and coping with anxiety and depression, as well as the many types of help available.

Support Services for Ingleburn High students and their families
Sometimes a young person, or their families, may require some additional support- beyond that which the school can provide. Searching on the internet, liaising with your local general practitioner or paediatrician, asking the school counsellor, or looking on your local Community Health Centre noticeboard may help you find a suitable service.
Here are some links, phone numbers and contacts that may help you access some additional support:
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.
Positive Behaviour for Learning
At our school, we use Positive Behaviour for Learning – 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.
