Pastoral Care

The College’s Dean of Pastoral Care works closely with House Coordinators and Home Room teachers to ensure all students are in an environment where they feel safe, secure and loved. Fortnightly EmpowerED lessons tackle issues such as self-image, cyber safety, resilience, safe partying and community building. The program:

  • Fosters a sense of belonging for each child
  • Actively promotes acceptance of the individual and individual differences
  • Encourages responsibility
  • Implements a Peer Support Training Program where Year 9 students assist Year 7 students making the transition to secondary school education
  • Is based on a vertically grouped House System so that students benefit from the interaction of working together across year groups

Counselling Services

Three College registered psychologists are available to support and advise students in dealing with the various dimensions of adolescence, school and family life, and where necessary, to refer students and their families to other support agencies.


Rosebank College’s Anti-Bullying Campaign

The College joins the fight against bullying in March. On this day, many schools around Australia take part in the National Day of Action Against Bullying and Violence. Each student has the chance to sign a pledge to indicate that they do not stand for any type of bullying.


Community at Rosebank Enables Safeguarding (CARES)

Rosebank College is committed to providing a safe and nurturing culture and learning environment for all children and young people. At all times, the ongoing safety and wellbeing of children and young people in its care remains the primary focus of decision making.

The College created the CARES program to provide students with easy access to a confidential, online reporting system via the Student Portal. Students who may not wish to engage a staff member directly for assistance or advice are encouraged to access CARES and click on the “Speak Out” icon to communicate their concerns about their own issues, or those of a fellow student.
