House System

House System

Student development often refers to the College’s educational involvement with students. The wellbeing of our students goes beyond the classroom. Our house system builds a team environment in which students can fulfil their potential.

Pastoral care is coordinated within each of the seven Houses: Chisholm, Faulkner, Kolbe, Lombard, MacKillop, Mitchell and Romero.

Cardijn has always had a strong tradition of pastoral care since its inception and the move to the house system was made many years ago. This focus on student development is a further development to continue to provide excellent care for all of our students.

Homerooms are arranged in horizontal year groups. Homerooms are named according to their year level in the school and house patron. Students build a strong sense of loyalty to their house and form strong relationships amongst many age groups. Each house, with its special spirit, looks to challenge, inspire and support students.

 

Student development will be coordinated within each of the houses by the following members of staff:
