Wellbeing is at the core of everything we do at St Pius X to ensure each and every individual member of of our school community is happy, confident and able to shine! Happiness is the key to good health and development. And happy kids learn! There is a calmness across our school, which is continually nurtured through simple acts of kindness and in giving and accepting compliments.
School Improvement Plan
During 2016 St Pius X school undertook a review process, to reflect on the goals and targets set over the last four years, in order to project a clear way forward for continual school improvement for 2017-2020. This is an exciting time for St Pius X as the data clearly indicates St Pius X is on a trajectory to becomining the first school of choice within the local area.
The CASEA (CAMHS and Schools Early Action) program is part of Austin Health and is partnering with our school this year. CASEA has been developed to help children understand and express emotions, and to be better at problem solving and getting along with others.
Berry Street Education Model
St Pius X will be implementing the Berry Street Education Model in 2017-2018. This is a whole school approach in supporting students to develop social and emotional skills to learn and succeed.
In today’s changing and complex world, many primary and secondary school students encounter daily adversity including chronic and traumatic stressors, lack of environmental supports, and other barriers to their own school success. Despite best efforts and intentions, schools require community responses to address student needs for healing, growth, and achievement.
