As a pastoral team, we have been looking at innovative ways to try and improve on our pastoral support mechanisms for your son's potential wellbeing while they are studying at OBHS. That they can just get on with what is really matters, which is being happy while learning, while making new friends and while being an active participant in a multitude of both sporting and culture activities that are offered by our school.
Hence, this new initiative of the Travellers program which in a nutshell will allow our team the chance to know you son better at an earlier stage. We can be more effective and efficient, in terms of our pastoral support that can be offered, if it was ever necessary for him while attending OBHS.
Below are some details on the Travellers program and the research methodology behind this program. This is provided in the form of a quick summary and followed with much more details in two hyper links below.

This coming week we will survey our year 9/10 students with the online Travellers wellbeing survey (which remains confidential to the pastoral team).
