Student Wellbeing Leaders

The Student Wellbeing Leaders are available for a confidential chat about anything that might be getting in the way of enjoying school, and achieving future goals. This might be stress, worries about studies, feeling low in mood more often than usual, and issues with friends and/or family. Everything discussed is completely confidential, meaning your information will not be shared without your consent. There are occasional exceptions to this, which will be discussed during the first meeting.

The school-based counselling service offers:

  • support to encourage attendance and learning at school
  • help to manage relationships with family, teachers and peers
  • support to manage issues of concern
  • information about and referrals to other support agencies
  • course and career guidance

Students can arrange to meet with us by visiting us directly at our office, or completing an appointment request slip available from student services.

Parents/guardians are encouraged to seek support from the Wellbeing team by contacting the front office  8261 2733
