A website is sponsored by the Australian Government and describes itself as "the complete Australian parenting resource from newborns to teens" and provides information as diverse as 'Parenting in Pictures' - step-by-step skills for baby care, to Cybercitizens - being responsible on-line for teenagers. It is a useful resource for parents.

Student Wellbeing Team


Student Wellbeing Leaders- Miss Waye and Mr Braun, Pastoral Care Worker- Jessie Heidenreich, and Wellbeing Engagement Mentor- Mr Emmins support students who struggle with Anxiety, Depression, Family Conflict, Self-Harm, Suicidal Ideation, Emotional Regulation, Anger Management, and other Mental Health concerns. We listen to your child’s needs, communicate with you, and access a range of different EXTERNAL SUPPORT SERVICES (listed below) to support your child. We manage and support children in care.

Student Pathways Leaders of Year 8- Mr Burkett, 9- Mr Daly, 10- Mrs McLaren, 11- Mrs Bennett, 12- Mr Herdman assist your children in making positive choices and navigating their way through their schooling life. This includes subject choices and establishing a positive mindset regarding their future. They also support students with behaviour management, and bullying/harassment concerns.

ALL teachers at MBHS provide your child with a safe and positive learning environment by looking out for their needs and being available to chat with them, about their general wellbeing. Professional boundaries are clear and further concerns are passed onto the WELLBEING TEAM.



Homegroup- Every morning students check in with the teacher any concerns, issues that may impact their learning or behaviour. They may also share positive information. Teachers will be approachable, develop relationships, hand out notices and take required action should they be concerned.

Personal Development Subject. This subject occurs once per week and is generally taught by the Homegroup teacher. It is mapped against the Child Protection Curriculum which the school has a duty of care to teach to all students. The subject helps students address their understanding of the General Capabilities and their own personal growth. Students aim to complete their Personal Learning Plan, and develop their e-portfolio’s during this subject.


Whole School Rewards Program- MBHS Highs. Teachers recognise students who support others in the community by giving them a MBHS High. At the end of each term students who earn a MBHS High earn a reward to say thank you for making a positive contribution to the community. This includes providing a morning tea or lunch during the last week of the term.
