Pastoral Care at McAuley College is an expression of the College Mission Statement. It is experienced whenever the people within our community interact to make positive choices about life.
Pastoral Care brings together all aspects of school life – academic, social, physical and spiritual. At its centre is quality relationships. Programs are in place to assist each student to develop into the best person they can possibly be. An underlying principle of Pastoral Care is that each student is an individual with particular needs and it is the day to day care of each student and their needs which is of paramount importance.
Expectations and values of the community are made very clear to students. All relationships should be based on the core value of respect. The emphasis is on respect for self, others, God and the environment, and is integral to all we do, how we act and all we say. We provide a safe and supportive environment, where each student feels valued and is given the opportunity to learn to the best of their ability and challenged to achieve beyond their potential.
As our students grow and develop, we hope to assist them to come to know themselves more, so they are ready to face the challenges that lie ahead. Pastoral Care helps us to achieve this goal.
