Chaplaincy/Pastoral Care services are available to all in our College community and have been available at Sacred Heart College for a number of years now.
The objectives of Chaplaincy/Pastoral Care are to assist school communities to provide pastoral care and general spiritual, social and emotional comfort to all students, irrespective of their faith or beliefs. This can include support and guidance about ethics, values, relationships and spiritual issues; the provision of student welfare; and enhancing engagement with the broader community.
