Aims of the Pastoral Care team at Ballincollig Community School

Create an environment which promotes the physical, emotional, social, spiritual and intellectual well-being of all students.

Make all students aware of the appropriate support that is available to them within the school.

Ensure that the Principal and other members of the Pastoral Care Team are available to both students and parents at all times.

Provide access to use of counselling within the School and/or other appropriate external agencies.

Here in Ballincollig Community School, we have an experienced team who support the students.

We do this by offering students ways of dealing with their personal problems in a positive way.

Helping them feel better about themselves and understanding the ups and downs of friendships.

Sometimes we will deal with any behaviour that disrupts learning in the school as outlined in our policy.

“The gift of friendship

a willingness to listen

a pair of helping hands,

a whisper from the heart

that someone cares and understands.”

Our team works with a wide range of outside agencies. This ensures we can help our students on a wide range of issues.

Some examples include:

Bullying/Homophobic bullying (Humourfit)

Drug and alcohol awareness. (Tony O’ Carroll - Counsellor)

Study skills/exam techniques and coping with exam pressure. (Ms. Trish Horgan - School Guidance Counsellor)

Relationships/sexual health (Cork Sexual Health Clinic; CURA)

Self-awareness/Emotional health

Bereavement/Loss (Seedlings Course)

Internet safety (Teaching Staff)
