Student Wellbeing

A strong positive focus on student's physical, mental and emotional health is key to growth and development.

Student Wellbeing Approach

We understand the importance of student’s physical, mental and emotional well being in ensuring effective learning.  Our aim is to develop a culture of student wellbeing through taking a preventative, proactive approach to supporting the development of our students.  We run a variety of programs to support the range of issues young people face as they traverse adolescence.  Some of these programs are run at the whole cohort level whilst others are offered to targeted groups of students.

Student Wellbeing Centre

The Student Wellbeing Centre provides a triage service for students who are in crisis.  They can self refer or be referred by a parent or teacher.  After some initial counselling to stabalise the situation the Student Wellbeing team will discuss further support options in the community with the student and/or parent.

We are very fortunate to have a terrific team who can offer this support, they include:

  • Ms Lea Morrison:  Mental Health Practioner:  Ms Morrison works with us full time with expertise in counselling and adolescent mental health.
  • Mr Guiseppe Relia:  Social Worker:  Mr Relia is a full time social worker who supports students through one on one interactions and tailored programs.
  • Ms Sanela Avdic:  Social Worker:  Ms Avdic is with us part time and works one on one with students in adolescent counselling.

Each semester we also have 6 social worker placement students who work with the team to support our students.
