Pastoral Care at Lanyon High School
The Lanyon High School community works together for
R ‚€“ Respectful Relationships
E ‚€“ A safe Environment
A ‚€“ High Achievement
L ‚€“ Quality Learning
and a ‚€˜REAL‚€™ education for a ‚€˜REAL‚€™ future.
These values are supported through our Pastoral Care system. Students receive individualised support from their Home Group teacher. Students receive individual suuport from their HG teacher, who is not just the contact teacher but one of their classroom teachers, thuse spending a significant time with students each day. Students and Home Group teachers are further supported by the Student Services team. The Student Services team aims to support all students and meet their needs to achieve success at school and maintain well being.
Lanyon High School uses 'Restorative Practices' to solve issues in the classroom. Restorative practices is about building healthy and positive relationships between all stakeholders.
The elements of the framework
1. Practice Domain
2. Fair Process
3. Restorative Questions
4. Theory of Affects
5. Explicit Practice When teachers, students and parents have an understanding of these elements, there is a greater capacity to engage, develop relationships, repair harm, reflect and measure current practice and improve learning outcomes.

National Youth Week
During Week 9 of Term 1, Lanyon High School celebrated National Youth Week with a range of activities throughout the week.
We began the week with a free BBQ and Youth Support Services Market Day, which most students took advantage of. Other activities included a dance off in the canteen, a showcasing of students‚€™ artistic talents in pavement art works, and a giant handball game. The staff band provided entertainment and an acoustic guitar jam session was led by our rock band. It was great to see most students and staff enjoying the activities on offer together.
We would like to thank Bakers Delight, Conder, MURA Youth and Community Centre and Francis from Kulture Break for their generosity and support during our National Youth Week celebrations.
