A message from the school principal

Young people deserve access to a great school, and recovering in hospital should be no obstacle to getting the very best education. We know that schools are such an important part of a child’s support network. Students need to maintain those links and keep up with their education, even while they’re in hospital.

Staff at Monash Children’s Hospital School offer experience and enthusiasm, are committed to their own learning and are proud members of this unique school/hospital community. Staff are exemplary role models in their relationships with students, parents and colleagues. 
There is always a special bond that is developed between teacher and child. Often this will be remembered years later as the student recalls the words and deeds of a teacher that has had a long and lasting impact on him or her. In this way, teachers hold a very privileged position, one that comes with great responsibility. Our staff, both teaching and non-teaching, are aware of this and commit themselves to providing the best education for all students in our care.

The greatest focus at the school is on the people that form this richly diverse community. The relationships that are formed with members of our community are critical for a genuine and authentic education to flourish. At Monash Children’s Hospital School two key ingredients form the keystones in which all relationships are developed, nurtured and sustained. They are the characteristics of respect and trust.
Monash Children’s Hospital School has the aspiration for the children in our care to develop as competent and confident learners, secure in their sense of belonging and embracing the principle that they will not be defined by their health condition but by their strength of character, ability and capacity. The young people in our care will have the opportunity to continue on with their education and stay connected with their school - they deserve this!
