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.

Parents may seek counsellor support through their class teacher/principal. Phone the school to arrange an appointment.
The school learning support team meets regularly to review and discuss individual needs. The school counsellor is a member of the learning support team
