Welfare Policy, Year Coordinators and Welfare Programs

The College strives to make effective provision for the personal guidance of each student. We recognise the responsibility with which we have been entrusted. Effective pastoral care cannot hope to fulfil its aims without continual co-operation and communication between school and home. Every member of staff is aware that they have a pastoral role both in acting as a role model and also in everyday guidance and support. The Year Patrons/Co-ordinators are a central point of contact for welfare issues. The College will endeavour to communicate directly with parents if a pastoral issue emerges with their child. Parents are encouraged to communicate directly with the Principal should changed circumstances at home be seen as potentially influencing a student’s behaviour or attitude. In this manner teachers and parents share the common goals of producing bright, lively and balanced children keen to function co-operatively in both family and school life. School days should be among the happiest days of our lives.
