Pastoral Care

As an Edmund Rice school, St Paul's is strongly student centred. Quality relationships are crucial in boy's education and St Paul's gives this a high priority.  Each boy will be supported by his Home Group Teacher, as well as a staff team including the Counsellor and Head of House. Sincere connections with the boys and a genuine appreciation for each stage of their personal growth enhance their learning in all facets of the school environment. A Pastoral Care program is provided at each year level, focussing on meeting the needs of the boys in a holistic sense, and supporting them to deepen their faith, develop quality relationships, aspire for excellence and welcome diversity. 

All boys are assigned to a House, through which they further develop a sense of belonging celebration and healthy competition in the academic, sporting and cultural dimensions of school life. Opportunities to gain experience and skills as leaders and provided to the boys through formal leadership roles in the sports program and at each year level, including Prefects and House Captains in the Senior Years.
