Caring for every student is a vital aspect of the life of Canberra Grammar School. Our approach to pastoral care stems from a fundamental belief that relationships are the key to success in teaching and learning, the key to development as an individual, and the key to bringing staff and students together. Sharing in meaningful and caring relationships is essential to the development of each student and is a primary concern of every member of staff.
At Canberra Grammar School we believe that student development is a multi-faceted process. We have developed specific programs and clear processes to provide opportunities for all boys to grow and develop during their years at the School. We aim to be proactive in developing boys who are intelligent, innovative and international in their thinking and compassionate, confident and considerate in their outlook towards others.
At the same time we understand that in various stages of their lives, boys may require additional support and encouragement.
The three pillars on which our care and development are based are:
- House System
- Leadership and Service
- Student Services
Canberra Grammar School is a special place, with a wonderful student culture and a level of care for boys that enables them to develop fully and to feel at home.
