During 2016-2018 one of the goals of the Catholic Schools Office was to create and support a systemic approach to pastoral care.
The strategies included:
- Use the research recommendations already conducted to create a policy framework for pastoral care within the Directorate. Develop roles, responsibilities and resourcing for pastoral care commencing 2017.
- Promote structures and processes that provide for meaningful student participation throughout the Diocese.
- Conduct a policy audit across all areas.
- Strengthen school systems which support positive student behaviours.
