St Matthew's Collegiate - Pastoral Care
Led by Deputy Principal, Julie Holdsworth, pastoral care at St Matthew's is provided by a strong network of trained, experienced staff. They are available to guide, support and encourage girls who face life challenges – large or small, including peer pressure, grief, substance abuse, parent-teen communication, accident or death.
Form teachers and deans take initial responsibility for pastoral care of girls and their families. A trained guidance counsellor andthe Chaplain are available to give moral and spiritual support in times of hardship or crises and on an on-going basis.
This support is available to all girls, right through to Senior College. Our team works closely with the Rathkeale College Chaplain and Guidance Counsellor.
