Authentic Pastoral Care

Authentic Pastoral Care involves establishing and maintaining boundaries, learning from our mistakes, empathy, care, concern and compassion for others, love and forgiveness. Pastoral care activities such as participation in a House, peer support, service opportunities, social interaction, student government, curriculum, methodology, behaviour management, and College leadership and management enable students to build close, caring relationships with peers, teachers and others.

Specific programs are aimed at enhancing students’ emotional and social development and overall health, with opportunities for professional counselling through the College Counsellor, College Pastor, Youth Worker and Youth Mentor. This team works closely with the Heads of School, Assistant Heads of School and the Year Level Coordinators.
