Our care of students is based on John 10:14; “I am the good shepherd, I know my own and my own know me”.

We strive to know each student well, so that we are able to assist them to become the best they can be.

THE PASTORAL CARE GROUP TEACHER (PCGT)

Students are placed in a Pastoral Care Group according to their House at the beginning of Year 7. Their PCGT meets with the group every morning, developing relationships within the group and creating a safe and caring environment. This time includes the opportunity to share news and other important information and to engage in faith activities.

The group stays together with their PCGT for the six years they are at Sacred Heart College. The PCGT becomes a very significant adult in the lives of the student.

THE DEAN OF THE YEAR GROUP

The Dean is charged with the overall management of the Year Group. The Dean oversees the work of the PCGTs in getting to know the students. The Dean is available to students and parents when there are concerns beyond day-to-day matters.

Ideally, students will have two different Deans, each for three alternate years, as they travel through the College.

COLLEGE PSYCHOLOGIST

The College employs one full time and two part-time psychologists, making up the equivalent of two full time personnel.

The Psychologists meet regularly with the Deans of Year to review students needing intervention. They also offer a range of proactive services such as Youth Mental Health First Aid Training.

OTHER PASTORAL PERSONNEL

Social Justice Administration Assistant/Parent Engagement Coordinator

The College Parents and Friends offer support to families in time of distress through the support of our Social Justice Administration Assistant and our Parent Engagement Coordinator.

Occupational First Aider

The College has a well-equipped Health Centre and supports students who become unwell during the day.

Careers Advisor

The College employs a highly experienced full time Careers Counsellor who supports students deciding what courses to study and what career pathways to follow.

Chaplains

The College is very fortunate to have close relationships with two adjoining parishes. The priests from these parishes regularly say Mass at the College and support students.

Dean of Campus Ministry

Our Campus Minister is also available to students to discuss any relevant issues.
