A Dean is appointed for each school year level.  They are responsible for student welfare, pastoral care and academic progress of students at each year level.  If parents have queries or concerns they should contact the Dean in the first instance.   The year level Dean regularly holds an  assembly.  This is a time to recognise achievements and successes as well as an information sharing time.
