About Student Services

Student Services works closely with students, parents and community agencies to meet the academic, social, emotional and cultural needs of our students. We work as a team to deliver group programs, individual counselling and provide referrals to external agencies.

Year Coordinators

Our Year Coordinators monitor the welfare and progress of students. Students and parents with questions or concerns should contact their student's ACE group teachers and Year Coordinators as a first point of contact.

Counselling

Our school psychologist works with individual students facing a range of life stressors or mental health psychological issues or referrals to external support agencies. He also works with families to address student concerns such as mental health, school avoidance and relationship issues.

He is also involved in the testing and management of students with special needs where required.

Our psychologist is available Monday, Tuesday, Friday and every second Thursday

Support for Indigenous students

Our Indigenous education team works with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students and their parents and carers to achieve educational outcomes for our students.

Opportunities are provided for our Indigenous students to explore their cultural heritage and also educate the general school community about Indigenous culture.

The Pastoral care coordinator manages the Student Services Support team. She helps us ensure that pastoral care is embedded in the curriculum and culture of our school.

She also offers programs for selected groups of students such as leadership training, peer skills training and mental health awareness, school related issues and relationship issues.
