Counselling Services



The College has a full time Counsellor whose role is to facilitate the emotional, academic and social wellbeing of members of the College community. The Counsellor works closely with students, staff and parents to ensure a co-ordinated well-being strategy for students as required. The College Counsellor is available to all students and parents to discuss matters of concern. The Counsellor usually interviews all new students so the student has a chance to discuss the anxieties that are attached to starting at a new school. The matters discussed between students and the Counsellor are kept confidential; the Counsellor acting entirely separately from the discipline processes of the College, and not referring students on to others for this purpose.
