Pastoral Care & Wellbeing

We are here to support you and your family

The College has a beautiful Pastoral Care Team available to our students and we continually strive to provide a range of support services to care for and support our students and their families.

We would encourage you to make contact with your child's class teacher or Home Group teacher initially, should you or your child require support, however, you may also wish to make contact with our Student Wellbeing Coordinator, Chantal Macpherson.

The role of the Student Welfare Officer is to provide support, assessment, and advice about student well-being, across the College from Prep-Year 12. This also includes working alongside other support staff to provide pastoral care and support for staff, parents, and carers of our school community. Teachers and other staff members may also refer a student for additional support due to escalating or significant concerns.

It should be clarified that the role of the Student Wellbeing Coordinator is not as a ‘school counsellor’ and that as a College, we are unable to provide ongoing counselling support.

The Student Wellbeing Coordinator may provide support to students over a designated period, however, if a student requires ongoing and extensive support, the Student Wellbeing Coordinator will liaise with external agencies for further assistance as necessary.

If you wish to make an appointment with our Student Welfare Officer you can email a request for an appointment on a suitable day and time or arrange a time to speak over the phone.

Please regularly check the College website and Parent Portal for further information to assist with coping strategies and well-being tips as we continue to adjust to the changing requirements brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.
