Pastoral Care

Our focus and belief at St Barbara’s School is that through positive teacher/ student and peer relationships all our students develop the opportunity to shine! 

Pastoral Care is at St Barbara's guided by the principles of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, Restorative Practices and Choice Theory. 

These compliment our Catholic Spirituality as they are aimed at utilising positive self awareness, empowerment and relationship development. 

Students can access the intervention program of Seasons for Growth,  a small group program that strengthens the social and emotional wellbeing of children and young people who need support in dealing with significant loss or change. This may include the death of a loved one, parental divorce or separation, the experience and aftermath of natural disaster, moving house or school, as well as many other life changes and losses.
