Student Engagement

Timbarra P-9 College strives to ensure our students are happy, safe, develop confident and are able to establish meaningful relationships. We value and provide opportunities for our students to have their voices heard. We provide a safe and supportive environment that contributes to 
positive learning outcomes, student agency and the wellbeing of all students, staff and the broader community. 


Timbarra P-9 College incorporates all aspects of school community life including students' physical, intellectual, moral, social and emotional wellbeing. We provide a nurturing environment and a Pastoral Care program appropriate for each stage of schooling. Each student is under 
the guidance of a homeroom teacher. These groups provide the foundation for a strong sense of belonging and the opportunity to build 
healthy staff-student relationships. 


Our Student Wellbeing and Engagement framework acknowledges positive behaviour, respects students views and encourages student 
agency. Our school culture encourages students to take responsibility for their own behaviour and choices. Our wellbeing programs assist 
in the development of life skills and specialist restorative programs enable us to support students in challenging times. Students may also 
be supported by a school psychologist and other expert staff if required. 

 

Timbarra College promotes positive student relationships. We aim to foster in each student the development of: 

  • Positive self-esteem and independence in learning.

  • A Growth Mindset that accepts that learning is ongoing and naturally challenging.

  • Confidence to strive for personal best and excellence in learning.

  • A sense of individual and collective pride in striving for continued improvement. 

  • Self-discipline, adaptability and flexibility to function in a changing society. 

  • Appreciation of the physical, social and cultural diversities in society. 

  • A sense of responsibility and ownership towards their own learning.

Timbarra P-9 College promotes positive student relationships built on mutual respect, embracing cultural differences and appreciation of diversity. We recognise that schools are important environments for the promotion of mental health and wellbeing in children and young people.
