Supporting CHAC students’ emotional and social development
The aim of the pastoral care program at Cannon Hill Anglican College is to instil in our students a sense of security and connectedness within the College. Pastoral care structures within the College have been developed to provide our students with a safe and caring learning environment.
At CHAC we believe supporting and promoting a learner’s emotional and social development and competence is as important as supporting academic development and competence.
A strong caring community develops in students a sense of self-confidence, respect for one’s self and others, and the strength of character to negotiate an increasingly complex society.
There are two psychologists and a counselling team at CHAC who work alongside the Learning Pathways Counsellor to provide for the combined emotional and vocational needs of students, and counselling to students and their families when required.
Visitors to the College often talk about the relaxed and friendly feel of the campus. This is deliberately fostered and nurtured through the following programs.
