School counselling service

School counselling staff are members of the school learning and support team.

A teacher may recommend the service by referring a student to the school’s learning and support team. As a parent or carer, you may refer your child directly to the school counselling service. Students can also self-refer to the service.

The school counselling service can:

  • support students who are worrying about school work, friends, getting in trouble at school or feeling down
  • help parents and carers make decisions about your child’s education
  • assess a student’s learning and behaviour
  • help teachers and students identify and address disabilities that may affect learning
  • liaise with other agencies regarding student wellbeing.

School counselling is confidential.

Supporting families

Parents have access to a School Counsellor on Wednesdays and Fridays if they wish to discuss any issues relating to their children’s psychological, social, emotional or physical wellbeing.

The school offers parents’ support in accessing and liaising with both government and non- government agencies.

Clinics are run at the school affording families the opportunities for evaluating medical, behavioural, sensory and speech needs for their children.

The school provides parents with the opportunity to participate in parenting programs.
