Our Pastoral Care

At Lowther Hall we understand that a girl’s emotional, spiritual and physical wellbeing are paramount to her overall development. To this end we have in place a pastoral care approach that ensures every girl is known and supported by a team of people.  

As well as collecting data to determine the academic needs of students, we also conduct regular surveys of their emotional wellbeing and tailor both Year Level and Cross Age programs for the particular needs of each cohort.

In 2019, Lowther Hall was selected as a finalist in the Australian Education Awards for 'Best Student Wellbeing Program'. We are one of 10 schools selected from hundreds across Australia. The winner will be announced August 16!
