School of Sanctuary

St Regis is proud to be an official School of Sanctuary.

  • Our school vision guides our practice of creating a culture of welcome and inclusion for all. 
  • We have a multi-cultural school community. 
  • More than forty languages, including dialects are spoken in school. 
  • We enjoy and celebrate all cultures.
  • We seize every opportunity to share our educational heritage.
  • We endeavour to continue our efforts and maintain our School of Sanctuary status.

What is a School of Sanctuary?

A school that is committed to being safe and a welcoming place for all.  We help students, staff and our wider community understand what it means to be seeking sanctuary and to extend a welcome to everyone as equal valued members of the school community. 

As part of our School of Sanctuary initiative, we aim to:

  • Promote positive attitudes within schools and their communities around people seeking sanctuary.
  • Support schools to take positive steps to be proud of being places of safety and inclusion for all.
  • Recognise and celebrate schools that are committed to welcoming and supporting people seeking sanctuary.
