Our current Pastoral Care system is organised horizontally by year level; students from the same year level are allocated to a year level Homeroom under the care of a Year Level Coordinator.
Each year students have a different Homeroom Teacher and Year Level Co-ordinator. A vertical structure is based on having a number of year levels from the one House (Burford, Daly or O’Loughlin). The Vertical Pastoral Care structure supports continuity of students over time as they work with the same Homeroom Teacher and Head of House for their entire education at St John’s.
Students will continue to come together as a year level for things like retreats, work experience, exam preparation, careers counselling and subject selection as required. A nominated Head of House will co-ordinate each of the activities.
