Wellbeing & Pastoral Care

Pastoral Care in St Kieran’s College has evolved over the years in providing a whole school approach to caring for our students. Pastoral Care supports and strategies have been implemented and developed to care for students before they arrive in St Kieran’s and long after they leave us. Our Pastoral Care team is made up of our School Chaplain and the Guidance Counsellors who are supported by Year Heads, The Additional Needs Department, teachers with supporting roles of responsibility, Form teachers and all classroom teachers. Our Pastoral Care Team meet on a weekly basis to discuss supports for students in need. They are a point of contact, a place to go for help for all in our school community. The Wellbeing of all members of the St Kieran’s College community is of paramount importance to us and therefore we have developed many structures and programmes over the years, aimed at protecting and supporting student wellbeing. We provide a wide range of co-curricular activities such as History excursions, the Amber Flag Programme and Mental Health Week to name a few. Guest speakers regularly visit students to discuss Mental Health, Wellbeing and Resilience. In addition, we have a wide range of extra-curricular activities promoting wellbeing in our school community. Our Student Council, an intrinsic part of the school community, gives our students a voice in matters pertaining to the student body and the general wellbeing of students in our school community.
