Pastoral Care

Monte prides itself on the role the staff and community play in the shaping of our young women. Our aim is to ensure that every student is cared for both within a formal and informal curriculum. While at Monte, students encounter the love of God through their experience of being treated with dignity and compassion. It is hoped that, through this experience, they may grow into self-confident young adults, capable of acting with honesty and integrity.

The Pastoral Care Program is run within Year levels. Tutor Groups meet each morning, enabling the interaction and participation of students and teachers in a small, personal environment. Each Year Group meets as a whole form on a regular basis to experience the integrated program of social and emotional care. Pastoral Care camps are held throughout the year and complement the program of development and personal growth.

Pastoral Care is an integral part of every aspect of the formal academic curriculum, whether through subject content or classroom management. The importance of positive role modelling is recognised throughout the College and all students are encouraged to accept responsibility for their personal contribution to the College community.
