On arrival at Villa Maria College, girls are placed in one of our six ‘Houses’. The Houses are designed to encourage camaraderie and a sense of belonging between students across all year levels. Each House is led by a staff member known as the ‘Head of House’ who oversees the pastoral care of the girls.
Girls in each House are divided into Ako Groups which consist of four or five members of each year level led by a staff member. Ako Groups meet twice a week for prayer, roll check and notices, and three times a week for a combined Assembly. The Ako Group teacher provides ongoing care, concern and guidance to students at all levels.
