OLGC has a strong commitment to the care, safety and wellbeing of all students in our school. We involve students when making decisions, we listen to them and respect what they have to say.
As a Catholic school, we have a moral and legal responsibility to provide a safe and secure environment for children and young people and to protect them from all forms of abuse and neglect.

This Bullying Prevention Policy complements our Student Wellbeing Policy.
