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.

Our school counsellor is available at school every Wednesday and Friday. During this time they see students who have been referred to the counsellor by the learning support team (LST) and conducts interviews with parents and teachers. Appointments can be made by contacting the school office.

It is important to seek help early if you notice any major change in your child's behaviour or feelings.
