Villanova’s Augustinian approach to Pastoral Care aims to foster personal development and self-discipline in every student. We achieve this through supportive relationships between students and their parents, teachers and fellow classmates. The College offers an experienced Pastoral Care team, character-building camps, student leadership programs, and a Restorative Practices philosophy for discipline and behaviour management.
Villanova College considers an Augustinian approach to Pastoral Care integral to developing personal growth and constructive self-discipline in all students.
From years 5 to 12, we promote strong and supportive relationships between students and their teachers, parents and classmates. The focus is firmly on the Augustinian ideal of a tight-knit community where every member contributes in a positive manner.
Behaviour management falls under the Restorative Practices ideologies, which emphasise each community member’s responsibility in supporting others. We also provide a firm base and safe environment for students to grow personally, emotionally, socially and spiritually into respected men of tomorrow.
