Student Wellbeing

School Counsellor

The students’ counsellor works in partnership with students, teachers and parents/caregivers to enhance students’ social and emotional wellbeing.

The counselling is child-focused and informed by the needs, goals and developmental level of the student. It is a voluntary process that takes place in a one on one setting at the school.

Our counsellor is committed to working respectfully and collaboratively with students, parents/caregivers and teachers in ways that build on students’ individual strengths, offering support and information on:

  • Anxiety and depression
  • Social skills
  • Grief and loss
  • Family issues (including family breakdown, relationship issues and violence/abuse issues)
