Pastoral Care

Pastoral Care permeates the total climate of all relationships within the community. It has the individual as its focus the ethos of Gospel-based communities and this is reflected in the support, the encouragement and the care experienced by students.

  • Appreciate themselves
  • Develop skills in building personal relationships
  • Experience responsible self-discipline
