CGA has a comprehensive and effective pastoral care network that underpins a student’s entire experience at our school. Our pastoral care programme provides guidance, advice and nurturing support for CGA students, as well as intervening in times of need. It enables each CGA student to become considerate and perceptive, able to tackle life's challenges head-on.
The CGA Pastoral Care Team provides the following support for students:
As part of the Pastoral Care network at CGA the school is fortunate the have the experience of Jan Blair as our school counsellor, providing services to both students and staff.
Jan is available to provide guidance and support in personal issues such as anxiety, stress, depression, relationships, grief, life transitions, adjusting to change, conflict, lack of motivation and confidence, time management and general coping with school and life.

Through Crimson Education-owned facilities and partnerships with institutes across New Zealand, CGA students have access to: study spaces, meeting rooms, science laboratories, social activities (such as theatre, dance and sports facilities) and examination centres.
As CGA’s global student body grows we are actively working to provide access to similar facilities in many more regions.
We facilitate online or in-person (and in some cases both) examination arrangements for all enrolled students, regardless of location.
We encourage students and their parents to direct any questions directly to the relevant teacher or Dean through the various methods provided: email, office hours, phone call and more. Students will also have access to their tutors regarding academic queries. If the matter requires escalation, then the Principal or Deputy Principal should be contacted.
