Welfare and Discipline

Support for Students

School Counsellors are experienced teachers who have post graduate qualifications in Psychology and School Counselling. They work with students from pre-school to Year 12. School Counsellors work with students, parents, carers and teachers in a variety of ways and their work includes; counselling students, assisting parents or carers to make informed decisions about their children’s education, assessing student’s learning and behaviour and liaising with other agencies to support students.

Students may refer themselves to the school counsellor at any time or may seek an interview at the suggestion of parent/carer, teacher or friend. School Counselling is a confidential service, and confidentiality will be maintained unless legal requirements override it, eg. Child Protection legislation.

 Parents/carers may seek advice from the school counsellor regarding a student’s school progress, education services, child’s behaviour and obtaining information from other agencies. Parental/carer consent is always required before any psychological testing is undertaken. It is necessary that parents/carers who wish to see the school counsellor make an appointment by telephoning the school. Priorities for the school counsellor’s time will be determined, in consultation with the School Counsellor, by the Principal.
