Pastoral care is a supportive relationship that empowers those in crisis or transition to grow in the midst of change. During a student’s time in school, he makesa challenging transition from childhood to adulthood which is completely taken care of by our school. We understand that parents entrust the care and education of their children to us and we,too are committed to nurture them with love and care. We offer extraordinary advantages in resources and choices at all levels through the three academic Divisions (Primary School, Middle School and Senior School), and the House system. These create inter-locking layers of pastoral care which enable every child, the reserved as well as the extrovert, to find opportunities to lead a confident, fulfilled and enjoyable life at School.
Pastoral care is the responsibility of the Matrons and attendants. This is further bolstered by an experienced and well-resourced Medical Centre based in School, and an informed and skilled Catering Department. Pastoral care isn't something that happens when things go wrong; it's a constant support network for your child’s time in School.
