Compass is a Senior School pastoral programme, which provides students with a skillset to journey through school and become self-aware, responsible and resilient adults. The programme has a strong focus on student wellbeing and includes a broad range of experiences, life lessons and important conversations to guide and support students. The corner stone programme within Compass is ‘The Rite Journey’, which runs for the duration of Year 9 and provides a rite of passage experience to assist the students on their transition from childhood to young adulthood.
Throughout a student’s journey in Compass they move through a set of age appropriate themes to gain valuable experience in a wide and varied range of programmes including Peer Support, Friendly School’s, Service Learning, The Rite Journey, Keys for Life, Protective Behaviours, Interhouse Competitions, and many more. All Senior School students participate in Compass each Wednesday morning during pastoral time.
Compass is a shared journey between students, families, and mentor teachers. The programme aims to equip students with a strong foundation to journey beyond PCACS with a focus on wellbeing, a resilient attitude when times get tough, a sense of connectedness within the community, and a drive to help others.
