Pastoral Carers

At Townsville Grammar School, Pastoral Care is the domain of all staff. 

We subscribe to a whole school approach to Pastoral Care, involving all Class, Form and Subject Teachers, Year Level Co-ordinators, the School Psychologist, Boarding Houseparents, Nursing staff, Indigenous Mentor, International Student Mentor and Heads of School. The objective is to assure students that there are adults within and outside the School who do care.

Students and parents can confidently access specific staff when they have issues relating to student well-being, and these include the Classroom Teachers (Annandale) and Form teachers and Year Level Co-ordinators (North Ward Campus).
