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.

Counsellors can help if students: 

  • are gifted or talented 
  • are not happy at school 
  • have difficulties in class 
  • have difficulies with behaviour 
  • need referral to a community organisation

Parents are able to make an appointment to see the school counsellor by contacting the Principal or class teacher. Currently we have access to a consellor each Friday. In the event that an interpreter is required, this can be arranged.
