School Counsellor

A qualified counsellor is available for triage and professional advice to students and families 4 1/2 days per week. The counsellor is a very good first port of call when students or families are experiencing emotional or social difficulties. They will refer families and students to appropriate channels of professional support if needed.

Students can request an appointment to see the counsellor; staff can, in consultation with parents, refer a student to the counsellor and parents can also approach the counsellor themselves.

The Counsellors can be contacted by email at  Jessica.sutherland@catholiccare.cg.org.au
