Student Services

School is more than study. Sometimes things pop-up that present challenges – normally at the time you least expect or need it. Our Student Services Team is here to help.

Need to talk to someone in confidence? Need to bounce ideas off a friendly listener? Or maybe you need study advice, help to design a study program or careers advice? Our team cares. The Student Services Team coordinates the pastoral services right across the campus. The team has a manager, a psychologist, two year coordinators, an enrolment officer, a multicultural support officer, a nurse and a Youthcare chaplain. Our Youthcare chaplain provides social, emotional and spiritual support to the school community. They are a listening ear and a caring presence in the school, available for all students, staff and families.

The Student Services team arrange events on campus, guest speakers, and work with your teachers to monitor your attendance, progress and well-being. The team is located in the Library. Pop in and say hello. They’d be happy to meet you.
