  Student Management Plan Positive Behaviours for Learning

At McCarthy Catholic College our student management policy is based on the premise that it is our collective responsibility to build and encourage positive student behaviours in the learning space, the playground & when representing the college in extra­curricular activities. We are committed to the development of the whole person for all students. This commitment is firmly grounded in integrity, justice & peace and it acknowledges that any consequence which lowers the dignity of the person is unacceptable and incongruent with our catholic ethos.
