Welcome to St Aloysius Catholic College


Pastoral Care

Junior Campus Pastoral Care

At the Junior Campus, we believe that it is important that all students have the right to feel safe and valued as a member of the College community. The Campus has adopted a School Wide Positive Behaviour Support (SWPBS), which is a whole-school approach to creating a safe and supportive environment that has a strong evidence-base and is used in many schools throughout Australia. 

Our approach focuses on everyone and all settings within the campus and promotes a positive focus on academic and behavioural outcomes across the College. It clearly defines our core expected behaviours (4 Bs), which are: Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be a Learner, Be Fair.

Expected behaviours are acknowledged and rewarded at both an individual (Betta Bee Cards, see POSITIVE BEHAVIOUR SUPPORT SYSTEMS for further Betta Bee information) and class level (Campus Dojo points). Class groups can earn “Dojo Monsters” for positive behaviour in line-ups, specialist lessons, relief days, church visits and moving respectfully around the campus. These culminate in a special offsite excursion or event for the top three classes at the end of each term.

Middle Campus Pastoral Care

At the Middle Campus, we believe that it is important that all students have the right to feel safe and valued as a member of the College community. The campus has implemented both a School Wide Positive Behaviour Support (SWPBS) and Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) program that aims to create a safe, respectful and fair environment in which the best learning can take place.

The Middle Campus Pastoral Care model operates under a tiered approach that aims to see all students live the College motto of Strive, Believe and Achieve. Our tier one is a comprehensive and evolving list of proactive events that aim to involve, empower and enrich student development. Some of the events include Bugs and Bees, Learning Centre gatherings, student led assemblies, Mental Health Week, communal Facebook postings, student leadership and regular social and emotional content in the College Newsletter.

College Counsellor

St Aloysius is committed to the pastoral care and wellbeing of all students. Our College Counsellors form an important part of the College’s Pastoral Care Team. 

Our Counsellors have extensive experience working with young people and are passionate about supporting and encouraging young people to reach their full potential.

Support to students is typically provided through:

  • individual or group counselling 
  • skills-based group programs
  • consultancy and advice to teachers and parents on a broad range of issues relating to young people
  • onward referral to external agencies in cases where further, more comprehensive, support is required 

Our Counsellors work across both campuses of St Aloysius.
