Pastoral Care

A place where every child belongs.

At Geelong Lutheran College we believe that we have been brought together by God’s love in this time and place to learn, grow, serve, worship, and to care for one another. We see our vocation as that of serving God and serving God’s children.

We believe each child is a unique and special person created in God’s image. It is a privilege to partner with parents and families as we walk with our students on this stage of their life’s journey—which emphasises growth spiritually, physically, intellectually, emotionally, and socially.

The mission of Geelong Lutheran College is to support parents and families. Christian education and pastoral care is woven into every aspect of life at the School.
Teacher with student

We are distinctly Lutheran in our identity. This is reflected in our teaching, worship, and lifestyle. Our Lutheran heritage is reflected in our emphasis always on God’s love, God’s grace, and ongoing care and presence in our lives. Our students reflect a diversity of religious traditions.

The Pastoral Carer’s role is to lead and support the School community as we provide Christ-like care for one another. Each student and parent can expect to be valued, listened to, and cared for at Geelong Lutheran College. We aim to provide an environment that is safe and welcoming to all.

The Student Wellbeing Coordinator is available to students and parents to:

  • Counsel students;
  • Support teachers and staff as they care for the unique needs of every student and family;
  • Extend care to families during times of crisis or trauma.
