Caring For Students - HSPA Welfare Programs

Hunter School of the Performing Arts has a strong student welfare focus based on the belief that students learn best in a safe, supportive and positive environment. Programs are in place to increase the social and personal development skills of students as well as to provide a framework for addressing concerns or issues that arise on a day to day basis. All staff are aware that student welfare underpins all school endeavours and that everyone has a role to play in providing the best learning conditions.
