Pastoral Care

During the past decade, there has been growing recognition the school environment plays a major role in the social and emotional competence and well-being of children. Kalamunda Christian School has made a strong commitment to promoting the well-being of the 'whole child'. Within our school, we teach and support students in developing the characteristics of:

  • healthy friendships
  • conflict resolution
  • skills for learning
  • empathy
  • emotion management
  • problem solving

Students work through a pastoral care program each week that helps them to develop skills and understandings that equip them to navigate the world successfully.

When struggles arise, students have the ears of their teachers, leadership team and school chaplain. Collaborative efforts ensure that students feel: heard, safe, and valued within the school community.

Kalamunda Christian School believes that communication with families is essential for an effective partnership. We provide regular opportunities for parent involvement, including: information evenings, guest speakers, orientation programs, classroom participation, excursions, WOW days, presentation days and assemblies. In partnerships with our wider school community, we strive for continuous growth and progress in all aspects of school life. Well-being is a journey we all step out in, together.

Our school values reflect Biblical principles and underpin the qualities for which we strive.

Honour: Treating others with respect, valuing the individual and promoting a sense of belonging for all.

Integrity: Seeking truth, honesty, and wisdom in all things.

Humility: Embodying a gracious and other-person-centred approach to relationships.

Love of Learning: achieving academic excellence and fostering the needs of students.
