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.

The counsellor's services are available to parents, teachers and students to assist with educational and behavioural guidance. Parents will be advised if the counsellor's support is sought in respect of a student and their permission will be obtained prior to the child meeting or being assessed by the counsellor. 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
