Pastoral Care - the House Family system

The House Family

This is a supportive system of pastoral care for boys by boys. Teachers manage a House family that consists of a number of boys from each grade with the notion that boys across the Prep school engage and share in a supportive way. Senior boys are expected to role model behaviour and attitudes for the junior boys but also to engage meaningfully with them to create a sense of school and House spirit as well as a general sense of belonging and community. House families meet a few times each term to connect and build school spirit and interpersonal relationships. It is only with this strong pastoral care support system that boys feel they belong. This gives them the confidence and emotional strength to face all other challenges that come their way at school.
