The Pastoral Program at MacKillop is a key aspect of the pastoral care and wellbeing of students. A 1 hour session is timetabled into each students program in every two week cycle. The content covered from Year 7 – 12 covers important elements of welfare and the healthy development of adolescents and young adults, complimenting and enriching the formal curriculum.
Each term is dedicated to a particular theme. From Year 7 to 12 these themes are consistent with each cohort focusing on a particular topic each term.
The themes are:
Term 1 – Study Skills and Organisation
Term 2 – Safe behaviours and well-being
Term 3 – Relationships
Term 4 – Community Service/Leadership
