Pastoral Care is one of the key pillars of a Loreto education; we are committed to providing a nurturing community where each student is known, valued and empowered.
To enable this, we deliver effective support structures and programs that enhance student well-being and resilience, while promoting academic growth. We also strive to foster trusting relationships that support parents and families.
To support the social and emotional well-being and personal development of all students, the Director of Pastoral Care works in effective collaboration with our Pastoral Team, which consists of six Year Level Coordinators, two Counsellors and a Learning Enrichment Coordinator. Students are part of a homeroom, led by two homeroom teachers who work in partnership to provide a constant level of care. Our students are known and valued and a strong support network works effectively to promote this.
Particular attention is paid to students as they first enter the Loreto community to ensure they are supported as they develop a sense of belonging and connectedness. A coordinated Personal Development program caters for different levels of maturity and the range of student interests and needs.
Students are encouraged to treat each person with courtesy and respect and to be attentive to the needs and feelings of others. A high standard of behaviour, reflective of these values, is expected both within and outside the school, in face-to-face and online interactions.
There are many opportunities for students to contribute, to become involved and to be affirmed for their efforts and achievements. It is our aim that each student feels valued and connected within the school community.
