Student Engagement and Wellbeing Framework takes a proactive approach to facilitating connections between students and their school, community, and educational outcomes. It places emphasis on the school as central to our young people’s daily lives—as a place of
more than instruction.
From our personal growth programme that focuses on social skills and practical life education, to our annual
arts production, contemporary
music lessons, district
student council, and our recreational
enrichment programme, we help every student to unearth their passion.
There are four homerooms from each of our two houses,
Bradman Braves and
Fraser Fireballs. The first enrolled member of a new Capella SHS family is assigned a new house membership, and future enrolled family members retain enduring membership.
Engage is a house-based homeroom made up of a small group of students from each year level. The group meets each morning to reflect on the previous day and prepare for the day ahead. Students remain in the same homeroom and retain the same adult mentor for as long as possible throughout their high school journey.
The goal of
Engage is to foster collaboration and communication between students of all ages, leveraging our small-school spirit, mitigating social pressures, better preparing them for future workplaces and social situations, and ultimately developing empathy in our young people.
