Pastoral Care in Assumption College: Its Concept and Practice.
Umali, Conchita V.
This paper argues that the individual and personalized approach of pastoral care in schools demands the total involvement of school administration, personnel, curriculum, and programs. Pastoral care is delivered through the various opportunities for contact between the teacher and student on a more informal basis and is in a non-academic setting. Group work is the main focus. It involves open communication, educational and career guidance, and parental involvement in their children's education. The paper describes the aims of pastoral care in the Assumption context, which includes a building stage, development of self-discipline, encouragement phase, and helping with academic and interrelationship problems. Pastoral care is delivered through campus ministry, student counseling services, and the academic curriculum. It states that this comprehensive approach will assist in the learning process, serve the goals of achieving academic excellence of an all-rounded kind, and respect the gradual development and growth of young people.
