The wellbeing of all students is the essential focus of all learning and teaching at Marian College. The quality of our pastoral care provides for the optimum environment for learning and the responsibility for its implementation is shared by all staff. Dimensions of Pastoral Care include the quality of relationships, the formation of self-discipline and responsibility, pastoral programs, comprehensive and inclusive approaches to teaching and learning, supportive school/family relationships, effective networks of care and a coordinated and supportive organisational structure.
Marian College is committed to encouraging each student to develop to her fullest potential, physically, intellectually, socially, emotionally and spiritually. This involves encouraging students to develop self-respect, self discipline, responsibility, respect for the community and the communication skills necessary to maintain healthy relationships. This ideal is achieved through our:
- Restorative Justice Program
- Homeroom structure
- Liturgies and Assemblies
- Student Leadership structure
- Transition procedures
- Personal Development Programmes
- Social Justice involvement
- House programme
- Learning and Teaching Program
- Co-curricular activities
- Camp programme
Our College is steeped in a tradition of giving witness to the Brigidine Core Values. Student wellbeing naturally emanates from these values and also from our Vision and Mission Statements. Moreover, as a Catholic community we have as our focus the gospel message and we commit to giving each student an experience of real Christian values and the opportunity to grow in faith.
