Pastoral care has taken on a more inclusive function and is inextricably linked with teaching and learning and the structural organization of our school. Students’ personal and social development is promoted and positive attitudes are fostered. This is done through the quality of teaching and learning; through the nature of relationships amongst our students and teachers; through monitoring of our students’ overall academic, social and emotional progress; through specific pastoral and support systems; and through extra-curricular activities and the school’s ethos. Pastoral care assists our students to develop a positive self-esteem, healthy risk taking, goal setting and negotiation skills. Effective pastoral care leads to resilient students who are confident to face life’s challenges.
