Like all NSW public schools, we promote the healthy development of students through:

  • school programs and practices that protect and promote health and safety
  • supporting individual students who need help with health issues
  • providing first aid and temporary care of students who become unwell or who have an accident at school.

Student wellbeing

Like all NSW public schools, we provide safe learning and teaching environments to encourage healthy, happy, successful and productive students.

The department is committed to creating quality learning opportunities for children and young people. These opportunities support wellbeing through positive and respectful relationships and fostering a sense of belonging to the school and community.

The Wellbeing Framework for Schools helps schools support the cognitive, physical, social, emotional and spiritual development of students and allows them to connect, succeed and thrive throughout their education.

Wellbeing System

Our school operates under an encouraging wellbeing system.

Brooklyn students abide by three key ideas:

  • Expect The Best

  • Respect and Responsibility

  • Learn Together

Our staff like to recognise when students are displaying great efforts in these areas by awarding them with 'Brookie Awards' which have been designed by the students.

We are adopting Growth Mindsets at Brooklyn Public School.

We encourage the effort it takes to achieve goals, more than the achievement itself.

We encourage inclusive practises.

Positive Behaviour for Learning

At our school, we use Positive Behaviour for Learning – a whole-school approach for creating a positive, safe and supportive school climate where students can learn and develop. Our whole school community works together to establish expected behaviours and teach them to all students.
