Pastoral Care


De La Salle College is a place of opportunity where we believe that the hidden ingredient to our success is the care and support we give to every single boy.  Your son is an individual with unique talents and abilities and likewise unique needs, and so we work in partnership with our parents and a range of other support agencies (including our College Chaplains and Counsellors) in providing for the spiritual, moral, social, emotional and cultural development of your son to ensure his academic achievement and personal development. 


Every single teacher in De La Salle College (as a Subject Teacher and as a Form Teacher) sees themselves in the place of you, the parent, “with the firmness of a father and the gentleness of a mother”, (St John Baptist de La Salle).  In a recent inspection report our pastoral care was referred to as ‘outstanding’. 


Our Pastoral system is integrated into school life and underpins the academic progress of your son.  Each Form Class from Year 8 – 14 has a designated Form Teacher.  Each Year Group has a Head of Year who leads the team of Form Teachers from Year 8 – Year 12 before entry into Sixth Form.  Each Head of Year is supported by an Assistant Principal who in turn is supported by the Deputy Principal and Principal.  The Form Teacher is a pivotal role in our Pastoral Structure as these teachers develop a special relationship in supporting your son as he progresses through the school year.


Every morning the Form Teacher meets and greets your son, leads the class in prayer, communicates any announcements, checks attendance, punctuality, uniform, equipment, homework and then motivates your son to do his very best in each and every class.  The Form Teacher is the first link between home and school.  If at any stage you are anxious about your son’s progress in any area of College life, please do not hesitate to contact your son’s Form Teacher. 


All of the staff in De La Salle College understand that they are working with young people who are still developing and growing.  Our students still have a lot to learn and a lot to experience.  We believe in these young people and so we work collectively to create a learning community and family where we encourage all of our young people to grow to excellence in everything they do.
