Protection, Safety And Wellbeing
A Commitment We Make To Every Student
At Mazenod College, we hold the care, safety and well-being of students as a central and fundamental responsibility of our organisation. All students have a right to be safe and feel safe. We commit to ensure and protect these rights in all aspects of our community and programs.
Mazenod has a zero tolerance of child abuse and other harmful behaviours. All allegations and safety concerns will be responded to actively, sensitively, respectfully and in a timely manner, in line with our lawful obligations and complaints handling procedures.
Mazenod College enacts the Church’s commitment to the dignity of the individual. All members of our College have a fundamental right to be treated with respect, and to learn and teach in a safe and supportive environment. We encourage students to contribute more broadly to the development of the kind of world envisaged by Christ, to form a commitment to the love, compassion and justice of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We promote justice, particularly to those who are culturally, physically, intellectually, financially or spiritually disadvantaged (Mandate for the Catholic Education Commission of Western Australia, 2009).
The person of each individual human being, in his or her material and spiritual needs, is at the heart of Christ’s teaching: that is why the promotion of the human person is the goal of the Catholic school.
Congregation for Catholic Education 1997, par. 9
We commit to providing the necessary resources to ensure compliance with all relevant child protection laws and regulations, and to maintaining a child safe culture.
We listen to the voices of students as we constantly strive to remain vigilant and make improvements.
Our Student Protection Program is based on the CEWA Child Safe Framework, the 10 National Principles for Child Safe Organisations and the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate Safeguarding Policy - Children and Vulnerable Adults.
The program is designed to maintain a child-safe environment and to embed an organisational culture of child safety within the College community.
