College-Wide Pastoral Care

We are committed to developing real and purposeful connections with students and powerful partnerships between students, parents and the College, based on the ‘four Rs’ of Relationships, Responsibility, Respect and Restoration.

The daily care and support of our students is central to the role of every member of staff throughout the College. The College is blessed by the work undertaken by its pastoral care teams at both campuses.

When we develop strong connections with each other,
we foster an environment perfect for growth and learning 

(Professor John Hattie, 2003)

In all communities there are times when individuals will experience conflict, disruption and disappointment. Sometimes poor choices are made. The College utilises a philosophy of restorative practices to enable those affected to be heard and as an integral part of the problem-solving process. See how we outline our commitments to honouring relationships in our Relational Development Policy.

I have learned so much about myself at school. To learn is to step back a moment and really just appreciate life as it is. Take something from it and move on. Living another lesson. —Year 6 student


All students within the College belong to one of four houses (Bradman, Fraser, Jackson and Laver), which creates connections between students in different classes and year groups.

In addition to a year-round program of interhouse sporting competitions, throughout each term we hold house events or campus activities to build connections.

The four houses compete keenly for a perpetual trophy, with points awarded for achievement, spirit and participation.
