Our Proud History
College House System
We recognise the value of role modelling in promoting the true spirit of pastoral care. It should be remembered that parents and staff are role models for the members of our school community. Similarly, students in the upper grades are seen as role models for students in lower grades.
Our College values a positive behaviour management approach.
The system of behaviour management contributes to the education of the whole person, recognising their ability to make choices and developing the capacity for self-discipline.
We work with our families to collaboratively help the individual to think realistically about their options and to make appropriate choices for themselves and the community to which they belong.
Please see attached the Student Behaviour Support Plan for the College.
CMC Student Behaviour Support Plan .pdf
The College Code of Conduct sets out the values that underpin our discipline guidelines. Our school wide behaviour management strategy is based on the Responsible Thinking Process.
College Code of Conduct
We acknowledge and accept our College Mission Statement and we will strive to:
value and respect ourselves and others,
extend courtesy to all members of the College and wider community,
do our best in all things,
respect the rights of others as learners,
accept responsibility for our own actions and decisions,
enhance the good reputation of the College,
respect the property of ourselves and of others, and
care for and respect our environment.
To ensure members of our school community have a clear statement of Discipline Guidelines,
To articulate expectations of students, parents and teachers,
To promote justice,
To develop self-discipline,
To enhance learning,
To encourage safety, and
To allow people to enjoy their time whether in learning or at play, while at school.
While the gospel values implied in our discipline guidelines remain consistent throughout the College community, the guidelines recognise flexibility in expectations and responses commensurate with individual levels of development,
The implementation of our common guidelines should be in keeping with the ideals of Christian justice and should be seen to enhance (and not reduce) the students’ self esteem,
Our discipline guidelines promote the idea that students accept responsibility for their own actions and behaviour at their appropriate level of development. Ultimately, true discipline is self-discipline,
While the pastoral care system encourages the fostering of close relationships between pastoral care teachers and students, pastoral care teachers need to recognise and respect the freedom of students to choose to seek help from any staff member,
Our discipline guidelines acknowledges that the possibility for extenuating circumstances exists, and an openness to this is necessary for justice to occur. Any discipline measure therefore must provide space for compassionate assessment of the situation, and
One of the main aims of the college is to develop a sense of mutual respect among all members of the community.
Responsible Thinking Process
The Responsible Thinking Process (RTP) is intended to educate students to think about their actions and what they really want to achieve. It is underpinned by the College's Code of Conduct, which states what is required of all members of our community. As a Catholic learning community, we believe that RTP supports the growth of students' as individuals, encouraging them to observe their actions and responsibilities.
The beginning assumptions are that learning places are for learning in safety. Similarly, other areas of the college where students interact, such as the ovals, verandas etc., are for movement, play and relaxation in safety.
Our students are encouraged to act in a way that supports these purposes. Students that choose to disregard these practices will not be entitled to be in these areas,
Students who disrupt the learning process or act in an unsafe manner are required to attend the Responsible Thinking Classroom,
The procedures of the Responsible Thinking Classroom are designed to facilitate students' thinking about what they really want at school. We believe that personal growth and better decision-making is possible through considered reflection and discussion with supportive adults assisting with future plans,
Students who are not prepared to take the Responsible Thinking Process seriously challenge the shared expectations of students, parents and teachers. Such behaviour reflects poor support of the College's Code of Conduct and is not viewed positively by the community, and
Parental involvement is necessary. As the first educators for our students, the shared responsibility and partnership held with the college is important to the success of RTP.
