Theresian House is divided into four Pastoral Care groups who meet daily, morning and afternoon, for administration purposes.
Pastoral Care groups also meet every Wednesday for a Pastoral Care lesson. These groups comprise of students from years 7 – 12, allowing students to interact on a personal level as well as offering support and guidance. In Theresian House, each student has a three-tiered support system within their vertical house structure.
This includes fellow students, two class Pastoral Care teachers and the Theresian Dean of House. The vertical house structure enables younger students to form relationships with older students. The Pastoral Care teacher acts as each student’s first point-of-call. They relate to students as individuals, helping each student to feel noticed and special.
The Theresian Dean of House oversees the organisation and Pastoral needs of their students. They are the contact person for non-curriculum issues who work closely with parents to promote the wellbeing of their child.
The Pastoral Care Program at St John’s School offers students the opportunity to explore real life experiences. The Pastoral Care teachers work closely with the Dean of House to promote a fun, compassionate and encouraging learning environment. Through this program students are developing the skills and abilities necessary to face the challenges of life. It is here where Theresian, as a family, collectively supports, nurtures and motivates each other to succeed.
