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 school chaplain provides support to students, staff and school families regardless of their faith. He is 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 spiritual reflection. In times of loss and trauma, the chaplain provides additional support to individuals, families and the school community.
In addition, our school counsellor is available for more specific social-emotional needs that require specialist assistance or outside referral. The school counsellor is available upon request.
We value our partnership with parents and recognise that when the school and parents have shared expectations, positive behaviour and change for the better is most likely to occur.
