St. Angela’s prides itself in being a caring community. Interactions between staff and students are characterised by mutual respect. Students experiencing personal difficulties are encouraged to seek help in the knowledge that they will be treated with sensitivity and supported in dealing with their problems. The key elements of our pastoral care system are the Class Teachers, the Student Council, the Meitheal team and the Guidance Counsellor. Each class is under the care and guidance of a Class Teacher who meets the class for five minutes at Assembly at 8.50 and looks after the needs and welfare of the students in that class throughout the year. A senior prefect liaises with the students in each Junior class while the Meitheal team’s main role is to mentor the new students in First Year helping them to integrate into the school community. Any student experiencing personal difficulties may be referred or may self- refer to the Guidance Counsellor.
