An essential part of the Holy Spirit experience is our Pastoral Care program. We are a strong community which believes in developing positive relationships within a family atmosphere where people are welcomed, respected, and valued. We believe learning is life-long and occurs both inside and outside of the classroom.
Students are encouraged and supported by their Learning & Teaching Leaders and a Pastoral Care teacher. Students get a chance to build positive relationships with students in their year level. The Learning & Teaching Leader is responsible for the organisation? of each House. They work alongside the Guidance Counsellor and the Senior Leadership Team who work together with parents to provide an infrastructure which aims to support every student in our College community.
From 2023 a vertical approach will be introduced for each House. This will see a Pastoral Care group consisting of students across all year levels. This promotes a strong sense of community, personal care, and leadership opportunities.
Students will be allocated to one of the four Houses. They remain in the same House throughout their schooling and all children in the one family will belong to the same House. In spiritual, sporting and cultural events, they represent their House to show their light to others.
The House names are:
Blue droplet represents the commitment to living Laudato Si' – seeking integral ecology and interconnection with all of creation.
Yellow flame represents part of the Trinity
Orange flame represents part of the Trinity
Green leaf represents the commitment to living Laudato Si' – seeking integral ecology and interconnection with all of creation.
It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the Holy Spirit College community. At Holy Spirit College we aim to educate our students with an appreciation of the spiritual as well as the intellectual and physical aspects of their lives. We strive to work with our parents/care?rs to produce young people of faith and character.
We strive to create an environment that puts the student at the centre and where that student is supported by dedicated teaching staff and tremendous community spirit. As a team, we are looking forward to developing further, the learning and teaching opportunities that will engage our students and build our teaching tools to deliver a dynamic and progressive curriculum.
We aim to instill a can-do attitude in all our students and work with them all to engender high aspirations and a range of personal skills and qualities including self-confidence and leadership ability. We ensure that we will develop our students not just academically, but as well-rounded young adults ready to be future citizens who will positively contribute to their community and the wider society when they graduate.
It is also acknowledged that social, spiritual, emotional, cognitive, and physical development will occur in students at different rates as they progress towards young adulthood. Therefore, it is essential to accommodate these differences, not by having different standards and expectations for individual students, rather by adjusting the amount of guidance, support and freedom students operate within for their stage of progress.
I am looking forward to leading Holy Spirit College into the era of new educational strategies, igniting spirit and inspiring minds, working closely with all parents/carers, students, staff and the wider community.?
