Thomas More College believes that the Wellbeing of each individual student is central to educating the whole person in pursuing personal excellence. A mentally fit student is more likely to learn. Thomas More College staff believe that our students should Connect, Persist, Respect, Act with Integrity, Serve, Strive for Excellence and demonstrate characteristics that will support them in all aspects of life.
Each individual is created in the image of God, as such Thomas More College staff treat each student gently, justly and with dignity. College expectations provide a framework that promotes stability, harmony and maximises the potential of each student. Through the use of Restorative Justice practices students are encouraged to be reflective and discuss with members of the community how they can best be supported to demonstrate growth.
