At Woodcroft College, the Pastoral Care Program plays an integral role in the life of our students. 

We recognise who we are teaching is as important as what we are teaching. We understand the important link between wellbeing and development and learning.

Each aspect of a student’s academic, spiritual, physical, emotional and social development is valued. We want our students to feel safe to explore their passions, make mistakes and grow into confident, capable and ethical young people.

Help and support is always on hand. Our staff share a pastoral responsibility to provide a nurturing environment and to know and appreciate each student as an individual.

Specific Year level structured personal development programs are delivered across Middle and Senior School.

house system

Students are assigned to one of four houses:

In the Junior School students gather in their houses to complete activities during lesson time (once a month) as well as compete against each other on Sports Day. Houses also compete against each other at the Middle and Senior School Swimming Carnival and Athletics Day. In addition Middle School students have a Points Day and Activity Day to earn their house points. Once a term during Pastoral Care, Middle School students undertake house activities as a year level.


Closely aligned with our Pastoral Care Program is Religious and Values Education (RAVE) under the direction of the College Pastor.  We recognise faith as a personal experience and we are an inclusive community. Our RAVE lessons provide the space to explore spirituality, to understand living with purpose and to support the development of good character and values.
