Gawura After School Care

After School Care is run by Camp Australia Outside School Hours Care Service (OSHC).  Camp Australia works in partnership with St Andrew’s Cathedral School and Gawura to provide families with an After School Care service. After School Care is located on Level 9, St Andrew’s House. All bookings are made through OSHC.

Gawura Homework Centre

The homework centre operates each Tuesday and Thursday afternoon from 3.15pm-4pm in Gawura. A Gawura teacher supervises students attending the homework centre. Students receive assistance and are encouraged to complete most of their homework during this time.

Student Wellbeing

The teaching and learning environment is individually and collectively rigorous, mutually respectful and caring. Under this framework the students are positively engaged, confident learners, who are supported in building positive relationships.

This whole child philosophy reflects a holistic approach to the developmental process and recognises health, wellbeing, positive/active lifestyle choices and a growth mindset as foundational to student welfare outcomes. Within Gawura, we want our students to be armed with a toolbox of strategies they can use now and throughout life to not only cope but to flourish and live fulfilling lives. We are passionate about our students not only learning these skills in the classroom, but also embedding wellbeing messages in every area of school and family life. The aim is to keep the language universal so that we are inclusive of all our students.

Chaplaincy

St Andrew’s is an inclusive school that respects and welcomes students of all faiths. We are also a school founded on principles of Christianity, and enjoy a positive relationship with St Andrew’s Cathedral.

The Chaplaincy Department has two core aims: providing opportunities for students and staff to connect with the Christian faith, as well as opportunities for all students, regardless of their personal faith, to serve the broader community through a range of service learning charitable programs.

We encourage students to think critically and seriously about higher order issues of a philosophical nature. We also want them to develop a deep respect and love for those who think and believe differently to them.
