HOUSE SYSTEMWhy have vertical Pastoral Care groups? Vertically arranged Pastoral Care (PC) groups were introduced at St Joseph's Regional College to:
At St Joseph's Regional College students form Pastoral Care (PC) groups, comprising of students from Years 7-10. Each PC group is part of a HOUSE, as students move into Year 11 and 12 they form a new senior PC group within that House. Students, therefore, remain in PC with some of their peers right throughout Years 7 - 12.
These House groups, under the leadership of the Leaders of Student Wellbeing and House Leaders, forge a strong House Spirit amongst the PC groups. This spirit is most evident at our sporting carnivals and St Joseph the Worker Feast Day activities. Each year one House is awarded the Father Leo Donnelly House Shield.
