‘Come, learn what you are in the eyes of God’

The College has a rich tradition of addressing the needs of the whole person and it prides itself on its commitment to pastoral care.  With this in mind, we work to create a learning environment which promotes positive well-being.

We understand and value the importance of positive mental health and well-being for our students, as well as the relationship this has on their ability to learn, foster relationships, and overcome day to day challenges.

The College Strategic Plan seeks to promote well-being by:

  • Inspiring our boys to be courageous and enthusiastic in all their endeavours.

and

  • Developing resilient young men with healthy minds and bodies.

To achieve this and improve students well-being, the College implements positive interventions which are evidence based. These include preventative tools such as mindful meditation, identifying and using strengths, acts of service, exploring gratitude to positively change the thoughts, emotions and behaviours of the young men we teach.

It is Mazenod College’s intention to assist parents in building young men who are confident, resilient, and willing to be positive contributors to their communities. One way is to help parents be informed with clear, fact-based information on the many challenges faced by today’s youth. Topics such as youth anxiety, depression, self-harm, drug and alcohol use, cyberbullying and many others need clear explanation and guidance. 

To that end, SchoolTV is an ongoing resource that is available to our parents. SchoolTV provides a single stream of independent factual information, organised by topic, which will save parents time and confusion of searching online across multiple sites for information. Under each major topic, parents will find expert interviews, fact sheets, parent quiz, recommended apps, books and much more. SchoolTV aggregates information from many great resources such as BeyondBlue and ReachOut, amongst others.
