I would like to thank the college for all they have done over the past 20 years. Your level of love and support was way beyond what any one would expect from a school and its faculty. Principal Hector Costello bent over backwards year after year to keep our kids at that school doing everything humanly possible to help our family. I would not hesitate to tell anyone of the goodness and integrity of the school as a whole and feel blessed that our family was and still is part of the Freshwater school community.
A Community That Cares
Here at Freshwater Christian College we believe in each unique individual within our community. We exist to provide a safe and empowered learning environment that nurtures caring relationships. We know god to be a loving heavenly father who made each of us unique and of equal value. It is because of this value that we see each member of our college community deserving of care and support, no matter their individual story.
Our Pastoral Care team is committed to ensuring that each student is given the support they need for their spiritual, social and emotional wellbeing. We provide an environment where every student is free to learn without threat or interruption and College staff provide all students with the necessary support to empower them to overcome inappropriate or harmful behaviours.
Each area of our College is well taken care of by our Pastoral Care team. We have dedicated staff that are employed to provide year level pastoral care and assist our Head of Primary, Head of Secondary and Principal in providing pastoral care oversight for the College community. Our College Chaplain provides pastoral care and support to anyone within the college community from parents and families through to staff and students.
Along with these Pastoral Care roles is the knowledge that each member of our College community, both student and staff alike, shares in the responsibility of taking care of one another. Our students are encouraged to be aware of the needs of others and are taught to show love and compassion for their fellow students. We believe that it is this culture of caring that sets our College community apart.
