Pastoral Care is the responsibility of every teacher at Faith Lutheran College. Every teacher in every class is encouraged to build relationships with students based on trust and mutual respect. It is from these relationships that success stems and learning can truly feel personal.
In addition to this distributed responsibility for pastoral care we have other structures in place to provide the care and emotional support our students require:
Pastoral Care Groups meet every morning at 8.30am and their activities include devotional worship, information sharing and general organisation. The PCG teacher is the first point of contact for students and parents of the College and a valuable resource for communication between home and school.
Special programs are employed at the College to improve our student’s ability to maintain a healthy emotional wellbeing. These include structured lessons, guest speakers and online programs.
