Pastoral care and concern for each individual are at the heart of everything we do at St George's. Our emphasis is on fostering strong interpersonal relationships and developing trust and mutual respect throughout our community. We aim to empower each student to establish their own identity, meet challenges with resilience and to develop the confidence to make sound judgements and autonomous decisions.
Pastoral Care Groups
Every student at St George's becomes part of a Pastoral Care Group (PCG), led by a member of the School's academic staff. A PCG consists of students in the same year level and house - Gandhi, Lincoln or Mandela. There are a total of 18 Pastoral Care Groups.
The PCG tutor is the parent's first point of contact and will remain with the student from Years 7 to 12 so that the pastoral relationship can be rich, informed and supportive across the student's secondary school years. Additionally, the relationship and understanding between the tutor and family is enhanced.
