Wellbeing & Support Structure

In Sancta Maria College we are deeply mindful of the welfare of all of our students and pastoral care is a vital element of service provision.

All members of the teaching, administration and ancillary staffs and school management exercise a caring role towards our students. Staff members build warm, respectful relationships with students while also ensuring appropriate boundaries are established and maintained and student responsibility promoted and encouraged.

The importance of taking personal responsibility is modelled for students and students are guided in making effective choices that allow them to meet their own needs, while also respecting the needs of others. Learning that all of our behaviours have consequences and that we always have a choice as to whether we choose those behaviours that are effective, or those that are ineffective, is also an important part of this awareness raising approach.
