Pastoral Care

Pastoral care is the provision the school makes to ensure the physical and emotional welfare of your child.

Pastoral care is the provision the school makes to ensure the physical and emotional welfare of your child. BIS also has a successful best oral care programme. It means that your child is safe, happy, involved and able to perform to maximum potential. They are capable of integrating well with the other pupils and, if any, problems are spotted and dealt with. In the residential campus of BIS, the mentors ensure that the discipline is maintained along with a soothing environment for students.

Pastoral care consists of

  1. Healing – a pastoral function that aims to overcome some impairment by restoring the person to wholeness and by leading them to advance beyond their previous condition.
  2. Sustaining – Helping a hurting person to endure and to transcend a circumstance in which restoration to their former condition or recuperation from their malady is either impossible or so remote as to seem improbable.
  3. Guiding – assisting perplexed persons to make confident choices between alternative courses of thought and action, when such choices are viewed as affecting the present and the future state of human wholeness.
  4. Reconciling – seeking to re-establish broken relationships between man (sic) and fellow man and between man and God.
  5. Nurturing –  Nurturing and guiding are the pastoral care functions in which education and counseling are most intertwined. Many teachers and parents in schools see this function as critical in the achievement of their community’s educational mission.

Implementing pastoral care in schools

The full development of pastoral care depends on utilising all five strands. It depends on the vigorous interaction and balanced development within an educational, institutional and/or community of faith, of each of these caring functions, applied to the special needs of young people in our rapidly changing and challenging society.

Caring is an ordinary human activity; human beings care for one another and for the world in which they live.
