Pastoral Care Program

“The value of mentoring is in the relationships that it creates and the opportunity for learning by seeing, not just by hearing.”

At Mount St Benedict College young women are educated to gain the skills and confidence to engage fully with life after school, interacting with others with respect and compassionate justice.

Integral to this is our Pastoral Care Program which encourages positive relationships and addresses the individual care of the student. 

During Pastoral Care lessons, Homeroom Mentors discuss issues of importance to students, run competitions and celebrate birthdays and other achievements of the students. Homeroom Mentors track their students’ academic progress and encourage organisation, good study skills and setting goals. Homeroom Mentors also conduct age-specific programs. These programs, with guest speakers, address issues such as how to build resilience, conflict resolution, careers, leadership and coping with the HSC.

Homeroom Mentors work closely with the House Coordinator to ensure the girls' well-being.

The girls will also have House assemblies where they meet with their Coordinators and House Captains to celebrate individual achievements, build spirit and work together to support the Good Samaritan Partners. Each House also has a House Patron who is a Sister of the Good Samaritan.  These women are celebrated as role models of leadership.  Girls are encouraged to aspire to emulate these women and to encompass the House and College values.
