School Counsellor

The Counselling Service at Senior Campus can be accessed by students, parents and teachers. Self-referrals are always welcome.

As the need arises counsellors run programs in study skills, anti-bullying, self-esteem, anxiety, depression coping skills, grieving, trauma counselling and so on. To assess the need for these programs the counsellors work with the executive staff, year advisers, teachers and the learning support team. To assist the school community, the counselling service has collaborated with a number of outside agencies including for example Greater Western Health Department, NALAG and Reconnect. The involvement of these agencies has assisted the school to deal with complex and serious issues.

Counsellors can be contacted either personally or by telephone on 6882 4655. The counsellors’ office is located in I block.

School Counsellor:           Mary-Jane Britten
