Unity College aims to provide Pastoral Care that engages students in understanding their identity, their values and their potential in the community. We also work closely with parents so that students can make the most of the opportunities available to them and develop self-esteem and confidence to grow as individuals.
Every student at Unity College belongs to a Home Class under the care of a teacher whose role is to be the first point of contact for parents, students and other staff for most matters relating to the student’s happiness and growth in the College. Home Classes meet every morning to share important daily information, and to organise and monitor longer-term matters and activities.
In the Middle School, students develop their organisational skills and self-esteem. Pastoral Care in Year 9 is delivered in single gender home classes to enable targeted learning and development.
Unity College also has pastoral support specialists on staff, including a school counsellor, school pastor and chaplain who provide a valuable ‘listening ear’, as well as a source of support, encouragement and guidance.
