The wellbeing of all students is at the heart of Catholic Education enabling a learning environment which provides for the spiritual, physical, emotional, cognitive and social growth of its students and staff. At Domremy College the staff are committed to assist your daughter mature in every area - spiritually, intellectually, physically, socially and emotionally.
The word ‘pastoral’ is derived from the Latin ‘pastor’ or ‘shepherd’ referring to Jesus, the Good Shepherd who cares for his flock. Pastoral Care refers to the total care of the student and is based upon a belief in the dignity of the person.
Wellbeing is understood as a sustainable state characterised by positive relationships at school, positive attitudes, resilience, being able to maximise strengths and high levels of satisfaction with learning experiences (e.g. Noble and Wyatt, 2008). Wellbeing is best promoted in a safe and supportive school.
Parent support for, and involvement in, their children's education is a critical factor in student engagement, achievement and wellbeing. At Domremy College, staff work in partnership with parents to ensure the best possible outcome is achieved for each girl.
