Pastoral Care & Wellbeing

O’Loughlin Catholic College creates an environment where students feel supported, happy, belong and safe.

An environment that encourages an increased level of accountability, responsibility and decision-making within the students and the community; and values and honours all as unique and special, especially in this important stage of physical, emotional, academic and spiritual development.

Pastoral care is student centred, using diverse and innovative pedagogies to both challenge and inspire.  Great importance is placed on building relationships - between students and their peers, and between students and adults - that foster communication, respect, resilience and social competence.  Thus pastoral care at the College, as a system, aims to ensure that the needs of the whole child are met.  This system plays a vital role in developing the knowledge, understanding, skills, abilities and attitudes necessary for our students.
