The welfare of our students is important to establish an effective learning environment. We build positive relationships with them and the College also places high importance on the value of communication between the school and home. Parents are encouraged to contact the College through members of the House pastoral team to discuss ways we can work with them to support their children.
The House System
Pastoral Care at Chisholm Catholic College is based upon a vertical house system which supports students’ welfare and behaviour management as well as providing opportunities for intra-school cultural and sporting competitions.
At the head of these houses is The Pastoral Leader who is the primary point of contact for support of students and families.
Students are in the same House and Pastoral Care Group while they are at Chisholm. The six Houses are:
Flynn – named after the founder of the Royal Flying Doctor Service, John Flynn
MacKillop – named after Australia’s first Saint, Saint Mary of the Cross MacKillop
Namatjira – named after the famous Aboriginal artist, Albert Namatjira
Oodgeroo – named after Oodgeroo of the Tribe of Noonucal, the famous Aboriginal poet
Parer – named after Damien Parer who served as a Catholic war correspondent and photographer
Mitchell - named after Dame Roma Mitchell, Australia's first Queen's Counsel. A proud Catholic who advocated for the rights of others.
