Student Wellbeing

Students holding hands

Holy Cross College aims to positively influence wellbeing by fostering positive and sustainable characteristics that enable students to achieve their best. 

Evidence supports the strong, mutual relationship between wellbeing and learning. 

Identifying and reducing barriers to learning, including those linked to student wellbeing, can help to maximise the educational and social outcomes for students.  The College works with parents in promoting the building of resilience in students.


The College offers parent workshops in areas such as Digital Citizenship and Parenting Teenagers.


The College Social Worker focuses on the relations and interactions between students and their school environment, and is available for individual counselling to support students. Grand funding is received annually from the National School Chaplaincy and Welfare Programme. The College Psychologist is available for students to assist with developmental issues from learning difficulties, stress, mental wellbeing and more. The College Nurse is available during school hours to assist in the medical treatment of students and staff who become unwell or need assistance with their daily medical needs.
