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.

For more information about learning and support teams and the school counselling service, please contact your school.

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.
