Student Achievement

Pastoral care refers to the total care of the individual. At Oakhill, pastoral care practices are based on Catholic values and a belief in the uniqueness of each individual.

“So God created humankind in his image, in the image of God he created them; male and female He created them.” (Genesis 1:27)

Recognition of student achievement, contribution and excellence is the most effective approach to pastoral care. Affirmation of good conduct helps to develop self-esteem, well-being and self-efficacy, while nurturing a sense of belonging.

The following are offered at Oakhill:

  • A positive word
