Pastoral Care

The Queen Margaret College Pastoral Care Programme seeks to ensure all students are made to feel healthy, safe and supported at school. We have a number of dedicated and experienced staff on the Pastoral Care Team, each of whom have a specific role to play in the care and guidance of our students.

Form Teacher

Each student is placed in a form class where, on a daily basis, she meets with the same student group and Form Teacher for the year.

Year Level Deans

Each year level has a Dean who is responsible for the well-being of the cohort and also organising a range of social events, including school dances and parent/daughter gatherings.

Chaplain

The school’s Chaplain supports the school assemblies and services and leads the family services throughout the year. Every Friday, the College holds a Chaplain’s Service, an occasion where the Christian character of Queen Margaret College receives its most deliberate regular focus. The Chaplain also takes responsibility for the Religious Studies part of the curriculum.

Guidance Counsellor

The Guidance Counsellor provides support to all girls, assisting with issues such as stress management, relationships and mental wellbeing. The Guidance Counsellor provides professional and confidential counselling services to girls and their parents.

School Nurse

The School Nurse is a registered nurse who is available for students between 8.30am and 3.30pm. Students are encouraged to visit the School Nurse if they are feeling unwell while they are at school. Both the School Nurse and Guidance Counsellor are housed in the onsite Health Centre.

Future Pathways and Career Coordinator

The Future Pathways and Careers coordinator helps students identify their interests, skills and strengths which may lead to career choices. The coordinator also supports the students with tertiary study selection and the application process.
