The role of the guidance counsellor is to provide support to students and families in terms of maximizing students’ educational, social and emotional wellbeing. As young people move through adolescence, they and their families face a number of challenges that range from personal issues, relationship issues, educational concerns and planning a starting point for their future after school.
The guidance counsellor is available to speak with students or families about any concerns that may be occurring in the school or home setting that may be impacting on a young person’s wellbeing. The aim is to assist all parties to reframe the particular problem or problems so that solutions can be found.
In addition, the guidance counsellor can provide students and families with a range of resources that can assist all parties in the transition from the school setting to either other educational institutions or workplaces.
The guidance counsellor is available to speak or meet with students and families at arranged times. Simply ring the school number and the office staff will put you through. Students are also free to make an appointment time.
