Pastoral Care/Student Wellbeing

The Diocesan Mission Statement and the Pastoral Care Policy of the Lismore Diocese, as well as the Lismore Diocesan Pastoral Care Framework guides the pastoral policy and procedures of Our Lady Help of Christians Primary School. Pastoral care of students refers to the action taken within a school by its leaders and community members to promote and enhance student wellbeing of a personal, social, physical, emotional, mental or spiritual nature. Key elements of student wellbeing are positive self-regard, respect for others, positive relationships, responsible behaviours and personal resilience.
