Pastoral care is an integral component of our school. A good pastoral system is the foundation of a holy and a happy child. We are committed to the welfare of our children, their proper growth and development. Education becomes meaningful in a school when the child is happy and has a sense of well being. This will instil in him the confidence that he requires to achieve and move forward.
In the melee of achieving high in life we often forget that it is important for a child to be happy. Our pastoral system encourages children to talk to teachers about various issues encircling their lives. Our pastoral system encompasses a wide variety of issues essential for the proper growth and development of a child. In our interaction the teacher encourages students to talk and express their opinion on various issues and the entire group provides all the support and encouragement one needs. The teacher responsible for pastoral care takes great care to provide all the emotional support a student needs to cope up with the stressful modern life. Discussions are frequently held on social and moral issues.
Pastoral care can also be a term generally applied to the practice of looking after the personal and social wellbeing of children under the care of a teacher. It can encompass a wide variety of issues including health, social and moral education, behaviour management and emotional support.
Pastoral Care is looking after and supporting the development of the “whole child” and is regarded as an essential part of the School's ethos. Pupils are encouraged to fulfill their potential and helped to overcome any problems they may face.
All students are members of a house. Housemasters , housemistresses and class teachers have the primary responsibility of taking care of students. They meet their group formally in a timetabled period and at other times informally, in the house or in various social contexts, so that problems can be identified and, after discussion, action can be taken.
Young students are encouraged to make the most of their time at school and every effort is made to remove obstacles to successful learning and to equip them with the confidence and skills to be effective learners and effective members of the community. All members of the school community have a role to play in assisting them to be safe, nurtured, healthy, achieving, active, respected, responsible and included.
