Like all NSW public schools, we promote the healthy development of students through:

  • school programs and practices that protect and promote health and safety
  • supporting individual students who need help with health issues
  • providing first aid and temporary care of students who become unwell or who have an accident at school.

Student wellbeing

Like all NSW public schools, we provide safe learning and teaching environments to encourage healthy, happy, successful and productive students.

The department is committed to creating quality learning opportunities for children and young people. These opportunities support wellbeing through positive and respectful relationships and fostering a sense of belonging to the school and community.

The Wellbeing Framework for Schools helps schools support the cognitive, physical, social, emotional and spiritual development of students and allows them to connect, succeed and thrive throughout their education.

Accidents, injury and illness

If your child is unwell, they should not attend school. Please contact your child’s teacher by email or complete a School Stream absence notification to inform the school about your child’s absence.

In case of accidents, injury or sudden illness occurring at school, students will be sent to the office where our office staff will administer first aid. Parents will be contacted when appropriate. Please assist us to keep our records up to date by notifying us of any changes to addresses or contact numbers. This will enable us to contact you quickly in emergencies.

Student representative council

The Mowbray Public School student representative council (SRC) consists of an active, vocal group of students in Years 1 6 who have many roles and responsibilities.

The SRC acts as an official communication between students and the wider community. These students have many ideas to make school life more productive for everyone. They meet once every fortnight to convey messages from the wider student body.

The SRC is motivated in their organisational work for fundraising events. Each year, the SRC nominates the charities they would like to support. The SRC students organises various whole school fundraising events to support these charities.
