Pastoral Care

Each first year/second year and third year has a special pastoral care teacher.

This teacher has a weekly pastoral care class with the students. Students are provided with social personal and health education as well as individual support.  Teachers work in this area under direction and undergo special training.

Learning Support

In consultation with parents, small group tuition is offered to junior students who have learning difficulties in English or Mathematics.  If your daughter is already receiving Learning Support in Primary School and has been assessed, please make sure that her principal forwards all necessary documentation to this school as soon as possible.  Help for students with special needs is given in accordance with department of education and science guidelines and funding.
