Individualised support, enabling every boy to flourish
Quality pastoral care is a fundamental part of our responsibility to nurture the unique qualities of each boy in our care. At Prince Alfred College, we focus on developing young men of character as part of a well-rounded education.
Our pastoral care philosophy is to teach, and encourage boys to practice, virtues. We strive to balance the development of performance virtues such as confidence and resilience, and moral values, such as honesty and compassion.
Furthermore, the program seeks to instil in our boys the desire and the skills to help others, not for personal gain but because it is the right thing to do, and to develop a strong sense of social responsibility.
Our dedicated pastoral team led by the Dean of Students and Year Level Coordinators, and supported by Counsellors and the Chaplain, work together to provide a safe and supportive place of belonging for every boy.
