The College’s Pastoral Care Program is based upon those Catholic principles which assert the uniqueness of each person and the importance of promoting each person’s self esteem in a secure and loving environment. Student wellbeing is nurtured by Pastoral Care programs across all year levels where both teachers and student leaders are involved in the care of every student and in which students’ need for acceptance, resilience, belonging and self realisation are recognised. Essentially the program has three main goals:
These goals are achieved through a wide variety of classroom and extra-curricular activities.
Along with Pastoral Care teachers seeing students on a daily basis in Morning Class Period, lessons are also allocated each week to conduct the program outlined below for each year level.
Relationships between parents, teachers and students are seen as most important and are fostered through involvement in Parent-Teacher evenings, school community activities such as the Fete, Gala Day, school camps and involvement in the co-curricular program.
In addition to tailored year level programs, students are encouraged to establish supportive relationships within their house groups whereby older students provide mentoring and assistance to younger students in the school.
