Concerns and complaints of students in residential colleges

It’s ok to have concerns and complaints about what might be happening at school or at the residential college.

Firstly, you have the RIGHT to feel and to be safe at all times.

Safety concerns may include things like:

  • inappropriate social approaches by a person to make friends with you or start a close relationship with you
  • inappropriate touching by a person which makes you feel uncomfortable
  • sexual talk, personal emails or personal contact via mobile phones or social media
  • inappropriate physical handling (hitting, pushing, hugging).
We can help you.  Our staff are trained in protective behaviours. They care and understand that you may feel a range of emotions about contacting us including anxiety, shame or relief.
