Pastoral Care

At Mandurah Catholic College, Pastoral Care is based upon the Christian belief in the fundamental dignity and worth of each person. Care of the individual is at the centre of a Mandurah Catholic College education and it embodies a climate of people caring for and respecting one another and challenging one another to be the very best that one can be. Emphasis is placed on: building positive and respectful relationships between all members of the community, meeting the challenges of life by being compassionate and resilient and helping students to feel that they belong to the cohesive Mandurah Catholic College family.

Without wellbeing, learning cannot take place effectively. We aim to develop the whole person and pastoral care is embedded into every area of College life. The College provides a safe learning environment in which students and staff can flourish and develop socially, spiritually, emotionally, academically and physically. High standards of behaviour and personal responsibility are promoted at all times as is respect for self, others, family, College community and campus, and the wider community.

Primary Pastoral Care

The Primary School promotes Kindness and Respect as the underlying values of the Holy Family Virtues program.

To complement this ongoing focus, students each term are also guided through the pillars of Peace and Hope, Learning, Faith and Love Through such guidance and learning, students discover and embed virtues such as tolerance, forgiveness, persistence, integrity, truth, honesty, service and compassion in their behaviour.

As part of our student recognition procedure, students are rewarded with “Hi5” cards when they demonstrate the Holy Family Virtues.

Secondary Pastoral Care

Students are supported by a team of specialist staff including but not limited to the Deputy Principal of Pastoral Care, Heads of Year, College Mental Health Nurse, College Counsellor and Heads of House.

The Heads of Year are responsible for the pastoral care of students in their year group. They maintain uniform standards, monitor absenteeism, oversee standards of behaviour and the academic development of each student in conjunction with the Deputy of Pastoral Care and the Deputy of Teaching and Learning.

The Heads of House are responsible for developing a positive morale and House spirit amongst Homeroom Tutors and students as well as fostering and maintaining an atmosphere of genuine pastoral care of all the students in their house
