Year 8 Pastoral Care

Year 8 Pastoral Care

Year 8 Pastoral Care focuses on creating and supporting students through a smooth year at Good Shepherd Catholic College.

The Pastoral Care Program also provides many opportunities for students to engage in activities to build relationships with one another to create a cohesive year 8 group, as well as giving students support across all areas of College and community life.

In Year 8, students are timetabled one Pastoral Care lesson per fortnight where the focus is on a range of activities to assist students during high school. These activities include:

  • Team building and ‘getting to know you’ activities;
  • Time management skills;
  • Setting goals;
  • Positive affirmations;
  • Resilience;
  • Bullying and Cyber bullying;
  • Confidence;
  • Self-talk;
  • Self-Image;

As well as specific weekly lessons there are also organised events for students to be involved in with senior students and teachers. These activities include

  • Year 8 Retreat which focuses on self-image and kindness. This retreat involves rotations throughout the first half of the day followed by a whole cohort activity (Term 2);
  • School feast days;
  • School sporting events;

The Pastoral Care Program is a valuable addition to the curriculum and aims to provide students with the skills they need to develop positive self-image, self-esteem on shaping their values and perceptions of themselves.
