Student Welfare

Your welfare is very important. If you are happy, learning and behaving well then you enjoy school and make the most of it. There are a number of systems, programs and practices in place to ensure that your experiences at school are positive ones so that you can achieve to the best of your ability.

 Positive Recognition

Recognition and celebration of student achievement in all curriculum and co-curricular areas of school contributes to student wellbeing. This recognition of student achievement and participation occurs at our annual speech day and through regular acknowledgement at school assemblies and the presentation of merit, participation and school service awards.

The Commendation and Award process operates cumulatively and allows each student the opportunity to be commended for a variety of positive behaviours and exemplary performances. We believe all students who constantly do their best in class, in the playground and also in the outside community, should be recognized for their achievements and positive attitudes. A student does not have to be a top academic or sporting student -just a considerate, caring and hardworking student who contributes to the positive tone of the school.

First Level– All students start on this category and this is where they begin to collect and save Merit Awards. Teachers issue merit awards for Safe, Respect, Learning and Belonging. This may include certificates for consistent effort, outstanding results, commitment to school initiatives, leadership, extra-curricular participation, excellence in sport and faculty commendations. There are also special High Achiever and Principal Commendation letters.

The table below shows the value allocated to each type of merit.

Students collect 50 points to move to the next level.

School Community Notice Board: The notice board at the front of the school is used to display important school messages. These messages not only act as a reminder of important school events but as a chance to inform the community of significant achievements attained by the students of the school.

Parent Letters: The notification of students' success and effort is recognised through personal letters home to parents and caregivers.

Sports Assembly: At the end of each year a sports assembly is held to celebrate the outstanding sporting successes that occurred throughout the year.

Recognition in the school Newsletter: Regular newsletters are sent to parents to inform them of school activities and celebrate student achievements.

School Web page and Facebook page: The school's web page and Facebook page are regularly updated with recent school activities and student achievements.

School Displays: Many practical subjects at Cheso create major projects as part of their coursework and use these to decorate (e.g. art work) and provide improved amenities in the school grounds. 

 

There is another side to our Welfare Program for things you do which we don't like.  A written record is kept of these things.  This record is placed in your file.  The School will very quickly call your parents if you misbehave after a warning.  There are serious consequences for people who do not do the right thing at Chester Hill High School.

 

SUPPORT AND IMPROVEMENT


If you have difficulty with the work in class, apart from the help you receive from your class teacher, you can get support from the Learning Support Team. If you think you need extra help with your work, please see one of the teachers.

Your Year Adviser also supports you. Make sure you know who your Year Adviser and Assistant are. They will let you know your classes, organise your reports, contact your parents if there are problems, find out how you are going by doing profiles on you and help you if you lose your timetables etc.
