Child Safe School
Our commitment to protecting your child
Christian College Geelong is committed to child safety and the protection of children from all forms of child abuse. The College demonstrates this commitment through the implementation and annual training of staff in its Child Safe Program, which has been endorsed by the College Board.
At Christian College Geelong, we have a zero tolerance for child abuse and are committed to acting in children’s best interests, keeping them safe from harm. The College regards its child protection responsibilities with the utmost importance and, as such, is committed to providing the necessary resources to ensure compliance with all relevant child protection laws and regulations to maintain a child safe culture.
Making our College a safer place to learn
Christian College’s Child Safety Policy complies with The Victorian Government’s Child Safe Standards, which commenced in January 2016.
The Standards set out minimum requirements and outline the actions organisations must take to keep children and young people safe, providing clarity and achieving greater consistency with Standards in the rest of Australia.
All staff at Christian College undertake annual training in the application of the Child Safe Standards and regularly review the Child Safe Code of Conduct as part of their professional learning program.
The Learning That Matters
As educators, we believe it is a necessity to reach beyond the fundamental skills to teach the whole person. We call this ‘whole person’ approach The Learning That Matters. Students develop understanding and build skills to meet the challenges of today and the opportunities of tomorrow.
