School counselling service

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, please contact your school.

Chaplaincy Program

The National Schools Chaplaincy Program has run in the school for the past four years. This student welfare role has been made possible through funding from the Federal Government. The funding provides for a chaplain for one day per week. 

Our school chaplain is Mrs Jo Bidwell. She works at Tharawal Primary School on a Wednesday.
