The Ontos Pastoral Care Program aims to enhance the social and emotional well-being of each individual student. The College successfully uses ‘Restorative Practices’ in building and maintaining relationships. Restorative practices is based on a belief that the resolution of conflict builds trust and good relationships. This approach helps staff and students learn from mistakes and resolve problems with others. It promotes resilience. It is about helping young people to become aware of the impact of their behaviour on others and to build their commitment to personal accountability and responsibility. The range of activities in the Co-Curricular program is also a way of engaging students in the school community and allows them to build relationships across year levels and with staff.
