Social Competencies

What is Social Competence?

Social competence refers to the social, emotional, and cognitive skills and behaviors that children need for successful social interactions. This allows children to:

• Establish and maintain a range of positive social relationships
• Manage interpersonal difficulties and refrain from harming self or others
• Contribute collaboratively and constructively to peers, family, school and the wider community

To support the development of social competencies we provide a range of experiences and learnings about how to relate to a wider circle of people. Students develop a range of skills and abilities that assist them to work co-operatively, solve problems, share information and experience a sense of belonging, purpose and achievement.
