We believe that every child should have the confidence to succeed. We have established strategies to ensure your child feels supported and encouraged throughout their time at school.
The small student population and low student-teacher ratio at Pittwater House means our teachers are able to create extraordinary opportunities for their students. Teachers can closely monitor each child's development and students have the chance to try new experiences that may pass them by at a larger school.
As a smaller school, we are also able to nurture and follow our students' emotional well being more closely, ensuring they settle into school and are able to face the challenges that school brings.
Form classes are the cornerstone of the Pastoral Care Program and remain single-sex from Kindergarten to Year 12. These Form Groups are the centrepiece of the pastoral care network. They undertake a range of activities together throughout the year including in-class lessons, group activities and camps, fostering independence and a sense of community.
We also use our pastoral care network to engage our students in our Positive Education Program, where we aim to produce well-educated and well-rounded individuals who flourish both personally and professionally and are well-equipped to contribute to society in a satisfying and meaningful way.
Each Form group is led by a Form Teacher who acts as the first point of contact for students and their parents on any aspect of life at Pittwater House.
