OHANA College staff recognises that wellbeing underpins all human experiences. Ohana College actively promotes a supportive and safe learning environment for all students, by making their social and emotional wellbeing our first point of reference. We provide access to a suite of allied professionals, including a registered psychologist, welfare officer, youth worker and access to external mental health services and youth support. OHANA College staff regularly engage in wellbeing professional development and wellbeing initiatives. We include social and emotional learning as a college developed curriculum subject.
We build a community that has a zero tolerance for any discriminatory behaviours. We celebrate the differences of our students and staff community. The experienced professionals at OHANA college understand that there are complex reasons a young person becomes disengaged from their education. We provide a clean slate and offer a fresh start in a different type of school. Who our students are is important to us.
Our entire school staff provide a nurturing environment inside and outside of the classroom. Our care for our students is reflected in our words and our actions. Our purpose is to support them in their journey to adulthood by providing them with the tools they need to navigate the landscape of human endeavours.
