Looking After Students
Hagley College is dedicated to providing a safe and supportive learning environment for our students to succeed.
Our goal is to enhance students’ sense of wellbeing so that they flourish at and beyond Hagley College
How we do that:
- We promote Hagley as a place where students feel comfortable and a sense of belonging
- We have a Wellbeing team of Tutors, Deans, a Director of the Junior College and Year 11 led by a Deputy Principal – Student Wellbeing who ensure every student is supported and cared for
- Our teaching staff use positive strategies to encourage students to achieve success in learning.
- We operate open lines of communication between the College and our parents
- We promote the school values of respect, personal responsibility, trust and integrity.
- We provide a guidance service to meet the individual needs of students seeking more wellbeing support. This may be individual consultations or group work.
- We provide a careers service for all students, when considering their future. This can include support preparing a CV, experiencing a short vocational course or job seeking techniques.
- We actively seek student voice around wellbeing and act on this data.
- We continue to link with agencies that can offer additional support to our students and their families.

Mental Health and Wellbeing Support for Students
The Ministry of Education has asked all schools to let parents know where to find information to support the mental health and wellbeing of their children, and to let you know that the Ministry has recently updated their parents’ website with information about where parents can go to for support and advice if they are concerned about their child’s mental health. Parents are encouraged to regularly check in with their child about how they are doing and the things going on in their lives. You will find links to organisations you can contact for help and advice if you are concerned about your child on the Ministry of Education’s website at www.parents.education.govt.nz/mental-health
