Pastoral Care Program 

The school endeavours to ensure that boys are well known and cared for through its structured administration. Over recent years, CBHS has implemented a number of initiatives to meet specific student needs such as Seasons for Growth.  In the senior years, boys have access to extensive careers facilities and resources.  Students in Years 5-9 also enjoy opportunities for personal development through the school´s camp program. Students, staff and parents can also access the services of the School Counsellors.


Key elements in our Pastoral Care Program are:


  • Homeroom Teachers and  Pastoral Care Coordinators (Years 7-12)

  • Class teachers (Years 5 and 6)

  • Counselling

  • The Referral System

  • Assistant Principal - Pastoral

  • Sporting and Co-curricular Programmes

  • Camps, retreats and excursions

  • House Masses

  • Parent/Teacher Nights

  • Recognition and reward for achievement 

  • Prefects and Seniors as Leaders

  • House System with House Captains

  • Digital Citizenship and ICT education 


Pastoral care teams exist in each house group.  Senior students in Years 11 and 12 are involved in leadership programmes.   A programme of camps and retreats also reinforces our pastoral care philosophy.


Every Student has the Right to Feel Safe


At CBHS Lewisham we believe it is the right of every student to feel safe and to be treated with dignity and respect. We are all responsible for helping to create a safe, family environment in our school.


Bullying appears in many forms.  Bullying can be fighting, excluding or hurting someone in a verbal or physical way.  Bullying can happen in the classroom, on the playground, travelling to and from school, even online or using mobile phones and cameras.


Bullying is not acceptable at our school in any way, shape or form.


Restorative Practice


Traditional approaches to discipline often focus on what rules have been broken.  At CBHS Lewisham, we give our boys clear expectations and boundaries.  We ensure that the consequences of their actions (both positive and negative), are unambiguous and identifiable.  What underpins our approach to pastoral care, however, is the formation of right relationships.  Restorative practices focus on repairing the harm done to people and relationships rather than on punishing offenders.  The process involves all parties affected and all have a say.  Its focus is on community, relationships and healing.
