Learning Support Team

The Learning Support Team is a whole-school planning and support mechanism. It is formed with the purpose of addressing the learning needs of students through the coordination, development, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of educational and welfare programs.


School Counselling Service

School counsellors are experienced teachers who have a degree in psychology and post-graduate qualifications in school counselling.  Most are registered psychologists. They work with students of all ages, and their families, from pre-school to Year 12.

The school counsellor works as part of the welfare support system of the school and is a key member of the Learning Support Team (LST).   They are responsible to principals for the delivery of school counselling service within each school. They complement and enhance the work of teachers by strengthening schools' student welfare provisions and providing counselling and psychological assessment of students with specific needs. They work to support the emotional, psychological, social and educational wellbeing of students.
