School counselling staff are members of the school learning and support team.
A teacher may recommend the service by referring a student to the school’s learning and support team. As a parent or carer, you may refer your child directly to the school counselling service. Students can also self-refer to the service.
The school counselling service can:
support students who are worrying about school work, friends, getting in trouble at school or feeling down
help parents and carers make decisions about your child’s education
assess a student’s learning and behaviour
help teachers and students identify and address disabilities that may affect learning
liaise with other agencies regarding student wellbeing.
School counselling is confidential.
For more information about learning and support teams and the school counselling service, visit:
The School Counsellor office is located in the main Administration building at Farrer and students are welcome to visit the Counsellor to make an appointment. Appointments can also be arranged through administration.
The School Counsellor can be contacted on 6764 8712
What students and their families tell the School Counsellor is completely confidential.
If the Counsellor needs to tell your son’s teacher something they will talk to you first.
The School Counsellor will discuss this with you when you first meet.
