Pastoral Care involves the quality of personal relationships and the atmosphere of care that exist at St Aloysius’ College. Pastoral Care is an expression of the Ignatian virtue of cura personalis, or care for the individual, one of the Characteristics of Jesuit Education. As such, it is to be seen and experienced as a core value embedded in our classroom, community and culture. It is grounded in the dignity of the human person because we are loved by God, and the consequences which flow from that relationship.
As a Jesuit school we encourage pastoral care activities that endeavour to seek the Magis. This refers to the more loving and generous way of serving God and each other. In striving for the Magis, we seek the deeper wellbeing of each person. All members of the community are encouraged to take a personal interest in the development of the whole person, educating the heart and the mind. Pastoral care promotes a positive, whole-school culture where each student can feel connected with others and flourish in a sense of his gifts, achievements and personal dignity.
