Pastoral Care at Mutiara International Grammar School involves looking after the welfare of students by providing guidance and advice so they can lead fulfilling and balanced lives in school and beyond. The pastoral team, with the help of teachers and staff, create a caring environment where students are valued for who they are, not just for what they can do.
Every member of staff plays an important role in this at MIGS. Key figures include the Head of School and a team of teachers forming the pastoral department. Students are monitored regularly and given advice and encouragement where and when required.
Parents are notified of their child’s development and behaviour through termly parent-teacher meetings, emails, letters and phone calls. Pastoral care is enabled in additional ways, including:
- the discipline system with Rewards and Sanctions,
- the tracking of students’ academic performance,
- the Mentor-Mentee system where all teachers get to know their tutees very well
- monitoring their academic, co-curricular, social and physical development
- operating a Buddy Bench system to eliminate loneliness and foster friendship on the playground and school premises
- school assemblies,
- Careers day
- monitoring daily attendance of students
- PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education) lessons,
- Selecting the school prefects’ board each year
- Pastoral Case work with individual students who are having problems be they of an academic, vocational, social, emotional or behavioural nature.
The school’s pastoral merit system helps us in getting indicators on how the students are doing all-round.
