Pastoral care forms an integral element of the philosophy and mission statement at Vienna International School and all staff members have a responsibility to care for the well-being of our students. Its significance is reflected in our structures, leadership roles, procedures and curriculum. It also underpins the daily interactions between and amongst both staff and students.
Each grade level is supported by a team of homeroom teachers, a grade level leader
, the university counsellor
, the school counsellor
and the curriculum leader for student learning support
. The homeroom teacher provides the point of first contact for students and parents. Pastoral care involves regular one-to-one tracking and mentoring of students. It focuses on the well-being and progression of each student on an individual basis. Our pastoral curriculum is comprehensive, age appropriate and addresses the students' social and emotional development. It equips them with the skills they will need to face the challenges in an ever-changing world.
