Student wellbeing and pastoral care

Scots All Saints College recognises parents, teachers and members of the wider community share responsibility for nurturing and educating children. Children excel and flourish when they are brought up in caring, stimulating and accepting environments. It takes a village to raise a child.

The Positive Education program has been introduced to help your child recognise, understand and nurture their strengths. This is a new ethos adopted by teachers, students and parents to guide a positive approach to a purposeful life. The aim is to equip students with skills to overcome setbacks, adopt a growth mindset, to be patient and persistent to achieve goals.

Strengthened by Christian values and pastoral care by experienced teachers and leaders, our students are encouraged to grow and enjoy success in many different forms. Scots All Saints College is a fabulous school where a lifelong love of learning is encouraged.

Student Leadership

At Scots All Saints College we believe that authentic leadership is characterised by loyalty, service, values, the ability to motivate others, discipline and integrity. True leadership acts in a manner that is consistent with and protective of the ethos of our College. Formal and informal leadership opportunities provided by our College develop the skills, knowledge and resilience in our students, that form the foundation of positive relationships and strong communities.

Year 12 leadership positions include College Captains, Prefects and House Captains. Mentoring Team Leader roles build leadership within the equestrian and cattle show teams. A special Chapel service is held annually to officially induct student leaders to the College community.
