LJBC’s Secondary program is designed to meet the developmental needs of young people as they journey through adolescence.
Heads of House are responsible for the pastoral care, discipline and welfare of the students in their House. As the student and siblings
remain in that House during their time at the College, the Head of House gets to know each student and each family allocated to the
House, ensuring a high standard of pastoral care. Each student is placed in a Form class within their House and each Form class is a
mixture of either Years 7, 8 and 9 students, or Years 10, 11 and 12 students. As these students remain in the same Form class for three years, they get to know their Form
teacher well, together with several younger and older students.
Staff who are closely involved in the wellbeing of secondary students includes the Dean of Students, the Heads of House, Lower Secondary Mentor, the Careers Adviser and the College Chaplain. The Senior Secondary Academic Mentor (Dean of Studies) provides academic support and advice, particularly during Year 12, the final critical year of schooling.
The Secondary School encourages and recognises achievement and personal effort across a wide range of activities. Awards, medals and certificates celebrating excellence, high achievement and endeavour are presented at College and House assemblies and at Presentation and Graduation Evenings. Commendation stamps in the Student Organiser provide encouragement and positive feedback. Students with good behaviour records receive various treats and outings. Senior students aspire to be awarded College Colours and College Honours. Students who represent WA or Australia in sport are included on the LJBC Sporting Wall of Fame. Graduates from LJBC are commemorated on plaques in Graduation Walk. Student successes are celebrated at LJBC!
