Pastoral Care

A strong emphasis is placed on pastoral care within the College. The Home Group or Classroom teacher provides the first level of care. Year level Co-ordinators offer students additional support.  

In addition, there are Student Wellbeing Coordinators at both campuses and a dedicated School Chaplain.

Wellbeing Services

As a Christian school, the wellbeing of our students is of utmost importance. Jesus said that others would know we are his disciples because of the love that we have for one another (John 13:35). In addition to this there is a great deal of research which points to the fact that students who are struggling with their own wellbeing find it difficult to learn and to thrive at school. If for no other reason, this places a great deal of importance on the pastoral care and emotional wellbeing of students.
