Pastoral Care

Our goal is to help our students to:

  • gain a better understanding of themselves and their environment,
  • learn to accept responsibility for their actions and
  • develop leadership skills to assist them throughout life.

We believe that encouraging our students to value his or her own unique abilities is one of the most important lessons of life. Our teachers encourage every student to be confident in their self-worth, to be open to new experiences, to build new friendships, to develop individual abilities and to explore undeveloped talents.

A prime focus for us is to build strong partnerships between the College and the families of students through regular communication.

Upon entering our College, each child is placed into one of six Houses.  Within each House, students are placed into one of eight Pastoral Care Groups (PCG).  

Each PCG has approximately 24 students from Years 7-12 and they are cared for by a teacher and their Pastoral Care Advisor (PCA). We believe that this structure helps to break down the barriers between different ages while providing senior students the opportunity to support and be role models for the younger students.

Each House had a House Coordinator who has responsibility for overseeing the pastoral care of each student in their House. 

Students remain in the same PCG for the duration of their time at the College, and generally have the same PCA, to ensure continuity from one year to the next.  Siblings are placed into the same PCG which ensures the PCA develops a strong relationship with the each family. 

We are always happy to work with families on any academic, social or personal matters. We encourage parental involvement in many activities, which helps to create a community in which our students, parents and teachers learn and develop together.
