Kids Feel Safe

The email link kidsfeelsafe@gilroysm.catholic.edu.au  is designed as another way for students to report any bullying, harassment or unsafe behaviour or thoughts that they may be experiencing personally or to report concerns regarding the well-being of their classmates.

This email address is mainly intended for the use of our students but we would invite parents to use it too if they feel this was a more appropriate or convenient way to share any concerns.

Once a student has sent an email using the above address, the report is received by members of our Kids Feel Safe Committee here at Gilroy Santa Maria College. These are:

· John Nuttall (Principal)

· Kate Stringini (Counsellor)

· Peter Groundwater (Assistant Principal – Pastoral Care)

·Amy Squires (Kids Safe Person)

Once received our committee will decide on an appropriate response, which may include counselling, discussion with parents, liasing with Year Level Coordinators, teachers and follow through with other students where bullying and harassment is involved. We believe our school has already a good culture where students feel comfortable to report concerns but this email link will provide another avenue, especially in our digital world where the use of technology is so much part of our lives.
