The PATHS Program stands for Promoting Alternative Thinking Strategies; this comprehensive program tailored for students from Pre-Primary to Year 6 is used to promote emotional and social competencies and enhance the educational process in the classroom.
The PATHS Program creates an environment across the whole school that;
Builds the student's self-control and self-worth
Teaches the students skills to recognise feelings in others and resolve peer conflicts
Enhances social problem solving skills and develops emotional understanding
We believe that every child needs to be strong mentally and emotionally to cope with whatever they will encounter in their life, leading them to develop well spiritually and academically. This initiative is a strong resource to reach these goals. At Victoria Park Christian School it is part of learning and every day interaction.
Victoria Park Christian School takes the protection of your child seriously, and for this reason, we prepare and protect all students from Kindy to Year 6 through a comprehensive child protective program.
The Protective Behaviours Program uses the Keeping Safe: Child Protection curriculum developed by child protection experts and experienced educators.
The program focuses on;
The right of all children to feel safe
Building positive and trusting relationships
Recognising and reporting abuse
Teaching protective strategies
