Pastoral Care

Wellbeing/Pastoral Care is very much part of the St Paul's ethos and is strongly evidenced in the welcoming and caring atmosphere of the school.  It permeates all aspects of school life.

It aims to support the students in their growth (spiritual, emotional, intellectual and physical) and build upon the foundations provided by their parents.  We aid each individual student to develop a sense of self-worth and an understanding of their role and responsibility within the local community, to the environment and the world at large.

St Paul's is engaged in Whole School Positive Behaviour Supports.  Staff are in serviced on an annual basis to ensure the acceptance and effectiveness for our entire school community.

Each member of staff is responsible for the Pastoral Care of students, their families and our staff.  They are further supported by staff with specific roles such as Wellbeing Leader, Religious Education Leader, and Pastoral Care Worker.

This is enhanced by (but not limited to) fortnightly assemblies led by the School Student Leaders, Class Masses held in the Chapel, House structure (Chaffey, Hill, McKenzie & Mercy), House captains, "Buddy" system for Foundation students, Family Support Groups, Food Bank, Hands Up Mallee Healthy Program, Cultural events and social gatherings/fundraising.
