Code of Conduct
The purpose of the Code of Conduct is to describe minimum standards of conduct in all behaviour and decision making to ensure the safety and well-being of students.
The Code applies to staff, students, volunteers, parents and guardians as applicable. The term ‘parents’ includes guardians.
You acknowledge the inherent vulnerability of the students in your care.
You recognise that the safety and well-being of students depends upon your vigilance and diligence and the vigilance and diligence of all adults.
The Code does not give you detailed professional advice on specific behaviour. Rather, it describes the minimum requirements expected of you.
The Guidelines are illustrative and not an exhaustive list of the behaviours covered by the Code.
If your behaviour varies from the standards described in this Code and Guidelines, you should be prepared to explain and justify your decisions and actions.
While mandatory language such as ‘must’, ‘shall’ and ‘will’ is not used throughout the Code, there is a presumption the conduct described is mandatory and therefore not discretionary.
The Principal expects you to conduct yourself personally and professionally in a way that maintains public trust and confidence in your school and the Church.
You have a responsibility to students and their family, other members of the school community and the wider community to provide and support safe and competent education and care of students.
You will do your best to support other members of the school community to comply with the Code.
In cases of conflict between parts of the Code, between the Code and other school policies, or in any decision-making choices, you give priority to the outcome that will be in the best interests of the safety and well-being of the child.

Bunnings Pay a Visit to the Learning Centre
Last week, Bunnings O’Connor kindly worked with our students to spruce up the upper deck in the Learning centre playground. Their generous contribution to making our school even more special included, annual flowers, vegies for the raised beds, paving and mulching. Each student received their own vegetable to plant in the raised bed. Thanks Bunnings. Our students really appreciated your time and effort.
National Tree Day – Year 4 Getting Dirty!!
‘On Wednesday. Of last week, it was fine and sunny (just in case you have forgotten, we do have this type of weather) so we planted native shrubs and trees for National Tree Day. We wanted to add flowering native plants in our front carpark garden. It will attract bees and birds and make our garden beautiful.’ Year 4 Gold.
Nude Food Days
Our students have a Nude Food Day every TUESDAY AND THURSDAY during term (and most try to have a Nude Food Lunch Box every day).
Nude Food Days encourage our students and school community to reduce the amount of waste we produce. Nude Food is simply food that is not wrapped in foil, plastic or packaging.
The purpose of the Waste-Free Lunch is to:
- Help students and their parents understand the benefits of a waste-free lunch and to be more aware of over-packaging in food
- Encourage students and their parents to meet the challenge of a waste-free lunch day or week
- Minimise waste from lunches at your school.
On Nude Food Days we ask that all student lunch boxes contain no throwaway packaging and produce no food waste.
Seton Experience Day
Due to your Year 5 students missing their Seton Experience Day because of COVID, for the Walyalup Catholic School Network last year (Year 4, 2021) Seton Catholic College would like offer an opportunity for this experience to take place in Term 4 this year.
Date: Wednesday 26 October 2022 (Week 3).
This would be a full day of activities on our campus similar to other Year 4 experience days where students experience sporting activities, cooking, woodwork and tour our campus.
