Our Students



Student Wellbeing refers to a state of positive social and emotional functioning - an ethos which underpins and is reflective of St. Justin’s school motto ‘All Students Can Achieve Success’. Wellbeing is a feature of our school - we aim to provide a safe, respectful and engaging learning environment in which the children in our care are provided with a range of opportunities to learn, practise and apply social and emotional competencies in order to enhance and support their personal and interpersonal development.


Using the KidsMatter initiative as our framework, evidence based programs which support the development of Social Emotional Learning may include:

  • ‘Stop, Think, Do’ (Social Skills – classroom based)

  • ‘Cool Kids’ (Anxiety)

  • ‘Seasons for Growth’ (Grief, Loss and Change)

  • ‘Play Pals’ (Social skills – play based activities)



St. Justin’s identifies and assists all students who require adjustment and additional remediation and/or extension support on the learning continuum. Commitment to the individual learning needs of our students is reflected in our programs, resources and interventions which support students from Prep - 6. Specialist teachers and support staff provide personalised learning programs for those students who require additional remediation, extension in literacy and/or numeracy.

Program support include:

  • Reading Recovery

  • Bridges

  • ERIK

  • Extension Maths/ Literacy

  • Life Skills

  • Levelled Literacy Intervention

  • Personalised Learning Plans

  • Learning Support Officers


Allied consultancy such as Speech Pathology, Psychology and School Advisors are provided through the CEM (Catholic Education Melbourne), as well as additional service provision from external support agencies.
