Pastoral Care

As a Catholic School in the Edmund Rice Tradition, pastoral care is influenced by the example and model of Jesus, as well as the Charism of Edmund Rice. Both men recognised the dignity, value and uniqueness of each person.

Pastoral Care at the College is based on the following principles:

  • respect for each individual
  • shared responsibility
  • restorative justice
  • consistency of response
  • social justice

The College House system provides students with a very personal and supportive environment to assist their development and learning. This system allows students to develop quality relationships and experiences that foster the dignity and well-being of each student.

Our aim as a College, through pastoral care and the House system, is to strengthen a sense of belonging and identity within the College community and to provide an environment where the well-being of our students remains at the centre of all our endeavours.

Our Chaplain, College Nurse, Pastoral Care Coordinator and Psychologist all provide support for the emotional and physical well-being of all students and members of the College community.
