Chaplaincy and Pastoral Care
Our classroom teachers are on the front line of pastoral care as they interact with students on a day-to-day basis. We implement anti-bullying and discipline practices that build harmonious relationships and resolve issues of concern or conflict openly and respectfully.
Our chaplains provide support to students, staff and school families regardless of their faith. They are active in coordinating programs for social wellbeing and emotional development, interacting with students in the playground and offering a friendly listening ear, mentoring students with behavioural or emotional needs, enhancing engagement with the broader community, and providing a range of opportunities for fellowship, such as chapel and week of worship. In times of loss and trauma, they provide additional support to individuals, families and the school community.
Our school counsellor is on call and available for more specific social-emotional needs that require specialist assistance or outside referral.
We value our partnership with parents and recognise that when school and parents have shared expectations, positive behaviour and change for the better is most likely to occur.
