Our pastoral care team, counsellors, and chaplaincy program are always available to provide guidance and support.
We believe that spiritual health is essential to student wellbeing. We encourage our students to explore their spirituality and develop their understanding of their values and beliefs. Our chaplaincy program provides opportunities for reflection, prayer, and spiritual growth.
At Villanova College, we prioritize the holistic wellbeing of our students. We believe that by fostering physical, social, emotional, and spiritual health, we can help our students reach their full potential both in and out of the classroom.
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.
