Student Wellbeing

"Thomas More College seeks to provide an educational environment which nurtures young people as they seek to understand their relationship with God, with themselves, with others and the world around them."


To this end the College recognises the needs of the young person as he or she develops in knowledge and skill, spiritually, aesthetically, physically, emotionally, socially and intellectually.

The community understands that these young people, as with all people, will require the support, challenge, love and forgiveness of the community and of themselves. The adults of the community provide positive modelling of the skills required to build the community and encourage young people to develop that self-esteem and responsibility which enable them to contribute to their own well-being as well as that of others.
