The goal of Pastoral Care is to support students, parents and teachers as they begin learning and growing in their academic, social and emotional skills, as well as to help them transition from one international environment to the next.
Pastoral Care acts as a resource, an encouragement and an advocate for students as they grow, learn and transition. This is best accomplished through parent partnerships. They also works in collaboration with teachers, administrators, the Student Learning Support, and other staff. As needed, pastoral care can give referral information to outside sources for additional counseling and support.
Additionally, OIS adheres to the child protection standards as defined by the the Child Safety and Protection Network located here.
