Pastoral Care

Our pastoral care program aims to provide a supportive, caring and Christian environment where students can fulfil their potential and become independent and interdependent members of the community, able to contribute to a wide range of activities.

At Westminster this means setting up systems and processes to ensure that we care for each individual student as a ‘whole person’. We do this by:
  • developing pride and commitment by supporting students’ continued and committed involvement in a wide range of School activities
  • creating opportunities for open communication and encouraging an appreciation of others in order to foster positive relationships throughout the School and beyond
  • encouraging independence to prepare students for their schooling and their future
  • providing positive role models and opportunities to develop leadership qualities in all areas of students’ lives
  • encouraging students to fulfil their potential in all areas of School life and beyond
  • providing a supportive, caring and nurturing environment appropriate to students’ individual needs.

In essence, pastoral care aims to prevent bullying, harassment, exclusion and isolation and to promote inclusion and celebrate diversity, difference and belonging.
