Pastoral Care


Pastoral Care is based on a deep respect for the dignity and uniqueness of the individual person as we are all made in the image of God (Genesis 1:27).

By providing a strong sense of wellbeing and belonging, students, parents and staff of our school community are affirmed in their dignity and worth.

At Stella Maris Catholic School, we assist students to work towards their full potential spiritually, physically, socially, intellectually and emotionally.

We promote our school as God’s Place.

  • A Place of Belonging
  • A Place of Respect
  • A Place of Justice
  • A Place of Hope
  • A Place of Celebration
  • A Place of Quality Learning and Teaching

Our School Vision Statement says we “Reverence the Story of All People” therefore pastorally we:

  • Respect of the dignity and uniqueness of each person
  • Care for each member of the school community
  • Accept ourselves and others
  • Support all parish and community members
  • Inspire and support others to fulfil their potential
  • Instil leadership and citizenship for all students, staff and the wider school community
  • Promote social justice
  • Continue to develop our Faith through prayer, reflection, celebration and action
