The School Counsellor can also:
- recognise and assist with the social, emotional, academic and learning needs of individual students effecting their psychological wellbeing and school performance
- consult and liaise between students, parents and teachers as required
- provide information on relevant referral options, and liaise with other professionals and support services within the community
- support and provide informative input to pastoral care programs within the school
Appointments can be made by students directly with the School Counsellor, before or after school or during morning tea and lunch breaks, at the School Counsellor’s office on the top level of the Gonzaga Barry Building.
