A high priority is given to pastoral care as well as the health and safety of all our school community. Christian values are encouraged through curricula, in relationship building, loving discipline and in the general care of each individual in our community — in the physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual domains.
Health and welfare, encompassing the mental, physical and emotional well-being of the student, are given the highest priority.
