What is Student Wellbeing?
The Islamic College of Melbourne provides a safe and supportive learning environment appropriate for each stage of schooling.
Each student is under the guidance of a homeroom teacher and is supported by a speech pathologist, counsellor and other expert staff.
At the Islamic College Of Melbourne, we believe that students are better prepared for learning when they are healthy, safe and happy. Our whole-school approach to student support includes strategies to help identify students’ needs. We take action to meet these needs within the school program then monitor and review progress.
Leadership opportunities are available at all levels of schooling and all students are encouraged to participate.
In year 3-6, The Islamic College of Melbourne has a vast number of leadership roles for which students can apply, whether it is house captains, the Student Representative Council (SRC) or Junior College Captains in Year 6.
ICOM students are divided into 4 house teams with the following colours, Red, Green, Yellow and Blue. The houses are awarded points during the year. This creates a sense of cohesion and sportsmanship amongst students.
The welfare program at the college provides services to students who are preventative and developmental. The services include individual mentoring and group workshops.
Year 6 girls group is aimed to teach life skills and enhance their ability to succeed academically and socially.
