PASTORAL CARE IN SALESIAN COLLEGE
The principal aim of the pastoral care programme at Salesian College is to nurture, affirm, challenge and inspire the students to be young adults of the highest integrity and confidence who use their spiritual, intellectual, social and physical gifts for themselves and the communities in which they live.
The school operates a Year Head and Class Tutor/Form Teacher system. Students meet as a class with their Form Teacher each morning. The class roll is taken and there is the opportunity for student and teacher to raise issues of concern. The Form Teacher is often the first point of contact between students, parents/guardians and the school. While the Form Teacher works with a ‘class group’ the role of the Year Head is to liaise with the whole year and with the wider school community.
Each year, we want to ensure that our incoming students have the best possible start to life in their new school. This is done by:
Education is viewed as a joint effort between student, parent/guardian and the school. Contact with parents/guardians is maintained through parent/teacher meetings and by means of formal reports issued twice yearly. Parents are welcome to meet any teacher by prior arrangement. The Student Journal is used as a means of ongoing communication.
