Did you know that St Paul’s has a Code of Conduct for the safety and wellbeing of everyone in our community?
All Catholic schools in Western Australia must abide by the CEWA Code of Conduct which establishes minimum standards of conduct in all behaviour and decision-making to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all members within the CEWA community. The Code is applicable to every person connected with a school, whether they are staff, students, parents, volunteers or visitors.
The Code of Conduct also shows us how, as a community our behaviours are a collective work that each day builds social justice into the life of our schools. Pope Francis insists that “true social justice is impossible if the human person is not the centre of concern”.
