Coburg High School is a Child Safe School. We have a firm commitment to uphold the standards and to embed a culture of child safety including strategies that seek to prevent harm and neglect, including physical, sexual, emotional, racial and cultural or religious abuse, and to foster a child-safe culture.
At Coburg High School, we have proudly been a Safe School for several years and we are committed to creating a safe and inclusive learning environment for all our students, including students who identify as same sex attracted, intersex and gender diverse (LGBTI) and we are proud of our active and progressive Stand Out group.
At CHS we are especially proud to have taken part in the Merri Health film ‘The Domino Effect’ together with Victoria Police to celebrate Wear It Purple Day, stand against discrimination, and promote LGBTQI youth safety and inclusion.
Here is the link to the film:
Thousands of students stand against discrimination – the Domino Effect
Every person involved in Coburg High School has a responsibility to understand the important and specific role they play individually and collectively to ensure that the wellbeing and safety of all children and young people is at the forefront of all they do and the decisions they make.
