Pastoral care is a valued and important aspect of life at Assisi. It underpins all we do both within the classroom and outside where students are challenged to live by the College Motto – Peace through Justice.
Pastoral Care is about quality relationships, nurturing the hopes of our students and sharing Franciscan spirituality. The Pastoral Care teacher is a very important part of the Pastoral Care structure – this person is the link between home and school. This person meets with the students on a daily basis to work on helping them become responsible, autonomous people who are able to achieve and maintain quality relationships.
Students and teachers are supported by Pastoral / Year Coordinators, College Counsellors, Campus Minister and Assistant Principals responsible for each precinct.
Pastoral Care in Middle and Senior Years at Assisi is a vertical system where students from Years 7 to 12 form the Pastoral Care group. In addition, Pastoral Care groups are aligned to one of our four Family Teams (house groups).
Family Team names are associated with our Franciscan tradition – Agnes (blue), Clare (yellow), Francis (green) and Rufino (red).
Parents are encouraged to make contact with the Pastoral Care teacher or the Pastoral Care Coordinator to discuss any concern their child may encounter. It is important that every student at Assisi feels safe, valued and respected.
