Pastoral Care

One of the strengths of Bacchus Marsh Grammar is the depth and quality of its pastoral care program.

The school looks to provide a range of curriculum programs and co-curricular resources, which assist children to develop as healthy and happy individuals.

It is the responsibility of all staff to be actively involved in student development. The School recognises that the key components in a model for growth of students are:

  • Know, respect and support individuals
  • All are challenged, expected and supported to achieve to the best of their ability through aiming high
  • Provide genuine opportunities to be involved and to lead
  • Allow all to learn and grow through success and failure
  • A community who values resilience, life-long learning and the importance of showing understanding for all

The School is particularly mindful of the need to develop within students’ methods to build resilience and an ability to cope with the normal ups and downs of life. The School’s Student Services Department provides a range of counselling and professional services to assist students with any particular difficulties during their time at school. 

The Student Services team also maintains extensive links with outside agencies for specialised requirements. The School also maintains both a strong year level system and House system to provide day to day advice, assistance and a sense of belonging to students.
