Student Wellbeing

Student Wellbeing Hub

Student Services Well-being Hub

The Student Services team are dedicated to working with all students to support pastoral care, social-emotional, academic and well-being needs of students, in order for students to achieve their learning potential.

 

At different times your child may experience a range of complex emotions such as fear, anxiety, anger, frustration, confusion, sadness or other responses to our changing world and environment. We encourage all students and families to keep engaged with activities that support your wellbeing.

 

We will work with parents and guardians, service providers and allied support staff to develop strategies and access key learning support programs for those students needing to develop particular skills to support their well-being.

 

If you have concerns about your child’s progress or welfare, your child’s Year Co-ordinator will discuss with you or guide you to the most appropriate staff member to assist.

 

Phone: 6235 7100, during the school term between 8.00am and 3.00pm.

Email: [email protected]

 

Please note that if you have concerns or require support outside of these hours or during the school holidays, we encourage you to access external services and helplines.
