Deans of Wellbeing (House or Year Level)

Based upon the core conviction that every individual is of infinite value and intrinsic worth and needs to be treated with the utmost dignity and respect, Kilvington has always had an enviable reputation for care. We recognise that students learn most effectively when their emotional, social and physical needs are met. By supporting each student, promoting self confidence in a happy and warm environment and working closely with families, we strive to ensure that each child flourishes.

Care is embedded within our academic, co-curricular and mentoring programs. Due to the small size of our student population, our students are not one of many in a crowd, but are known to staff for their unique personality, strengths, talents, passions and interests.

The Dean of Wellbeing (Year 7, 8 or 9) is responsible for the collective growth of the year level and each individual student by overseeing their wellbeing and academic progress with a team of House Mentors.

The Deans take a leading role in establishing and maintaining a positive, caring and safe environment for students that supports effective learning, cooperative behavior, student participation, positive engagement and retention.
