Family Support


A range of services is available to support families, including translation and interpreter services, adult education, adult English programs and telephone counselling services.

The school counsellor can assist when families undergo a trauma or big change.  Our counsellor can also assist students who may be feeling extremely sad or anxious. It is important to seek help early if you notice any major change in your child's behaviour. Contact us if you would like to make an appointment.

The School Welfare Chaplain is also available to give support to students and their families. The Chaplain, Adele Wakeling, is at school on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
