At St Gregory's College we value each individual as a unique person and aim to develop within the person a strong faith, a love of learning and a belief in their self-worth.
The College philosophy has as its foundation the principle that the primary form of pastoral care is good teaching, whether in the classroom, workshop or on the sporting field. Pastoral care practices are based on Catholic values and a belief in the dignity of each individual. We strive to provide a safe and happy learning environment where all boys can reach their potential.
In keeping with the principles of Marist education, St Gregory's College encourages a strong sense of community, which involves families and the wider community. It is clear that students develop most happily when the College and families are working together with a common purpose and values.
St Gregory's College Campbelltown aims to be a community where:
- There is joy and celebration.
- A sense of family is evident.
- Students and teachers work together with a common purpose.
- Teachers have an active presence amongst the students.
- People pray and worship together.
- Jesus is known to the students.
The pastoral care of students is the responsibility of all members of staff. At St Gregory's College this is expressed through:
- The development of quality relationships.
- The provision of quality learning experiences.
- The maintenance of an effective care network.
- The provision of outdoor education (camps).
- The implementation of effective student management practices that foster self-discipline in the students.
- The provision of leadership opportunities for the students.
- The ongoing development of anti-bullying education, policies and processes.
- The support of those in need through prayer and assistance.
- The distribution of special awards to celebrate achievements and virtuous qualities.
- Through positive adult role modelling and restorative management practices we challenge students to live with courage and integrity, as exemplified by St Marcellin Champagnat, founder of the Marist Brothers.
