The Care Team

Our Pastoral Care is centred on the holistic wellbeing of each child. Psychologists, Nurses, Deputies of Care and Deans of Houses work together to ensure a sense of belonging, support and wellbeing.

Psychologists

Students go through a range of emotional and developmental stages during their schooling, and we understand each requires a different approach and understanding.

Our team of highly-qualified School Psychologists are an invaluable resource for parents, families and students, with members based at each campus in both Primary and Secondary schools.

They offer specialist advice and intervention in the spheres of behavioural, learning, cognitive and personal development through proactive involvement, seminars and community events focused on care and wellbeing.

Nurses

Each campus has a fully-trained nurse onsite to ensure students’ safety, health and wellbeing. They are familiar with students’ conditions and have action plans in place. Our nurses are also informed and trained in the latest information and treatments.

Houses

Our House system creates a sense of belonging for staff and students from Pre-Kindergarten to Year 12. Students are assigned to a House upon enrolment and remain in the same House throughout their schooling. This aligns with the School’s community approach within the Houses and provides a home away from home for students.

Each Secondary School House area is led by a Dean, Assistant Dean and student House leaders who encourage, counsel and assist our community. The students report to a homeroom in their House building, together with students from a range of age groups. The scope of ages and abilities in each area provides structured mentoring and leadership opportunities.
