Bialik College is committed to ensuring child safety throughout our organisation, by protecting the safety and wellbeing of all children and students accessing Bialik College, including its events and activities. The College has a zero tolerance approach to bullying and has systems in place to support this. This commitment is a part of the culture of Bialik College, embedded in our interactions as a community and endorsed at the highest level: the Principal and the Bialik College Council.
In accordance with Bialik College’s core values of respect, integrity, perseverance, empathy and responsibility, we hold the safety and wellbeing of children as a key responsibility of the entire Bialik College community. As such, it is our ongoing task to inform, train and educate our College community.
Student welfare and wellbeing is of paramount importance. Under the guidance of our Assistant Principal (Pastoral Care), Bialik has a team of specialists which includes school psychologists, a Rabbi, literacy and numeracy support teachers and classroom assistants to assist the entire school community as required, whether with study and learning skills, or emotional and social skills. Many students benefit from one-on-one attention. Our dedicated staff is highly skilled, very experienced and above all, deeply caring.
Each year, the Bialik College Early Learning Centre showcases the “Windows into Children’s Thinking” exhibition, which highlights the curiosity, theories and research of young children and their teachers. The ELC hosts an annual Windows Into Children’s Thinking Installation.
“This process underpins our whole approach to understanding learning. It is seen as a way of listening to, respecting and supporting individual and group learning of both children and adults. It is a model from which to draw inspiration and to differentiate energy.”
— Daphne Gaddie, Head of the Early Learning Centre
Bialik College is a place of research, curiosity and wonder and this attitude creates an environment of interest and surprise for both teachers and students. The process of learning is documented and displayed on the walls of classrooms, corridors and in exhibitions like this one.
The ELC installation culminates in an acclaimed annual Journal “Windows Into Children’s Thinking”. which is available for sale. For more information, please contact [email protected]
