Student Services Centre

Student Services Team

The Student Service Centre has been set up to provide assistance for students who may be experiencing academic, vocational, social, emotional or health concerns.

The team consists of the Deputy Principal of Student Services, Manager Student Services (Senior School), Manager Student Services (Middle School), Year Coordinators, Psychologist (Senior School), Psychologist (Middle School), the Community Health Nurse, AIEO (Aboriginal and Islander Education Officer), the School Chaplain, Learning Support Coordinator, and Attendance Officers.

The Managers of Student Services (Senior School and Middle School) coordinate and manage the Student Services team. 

Managers work collaboratively with teaching and non-teaching staff, families and the wider education community to promote positive behaviour, excellent attendance and assist the welfare and social/emotional needs of our students.

Year Coordinators - Each year group has a coordinator who leads their cohort of students; assisting with social, emotional, welfare, attendance, academic and behavioural concerns. Year Coordinators provide advice to teachers and Heads of Learning Area to cater for the changing needs of students by being a conduit between parents, teachers and external support agencies. Year Coordinators follow their group from Year 7 to Year 11, where leadership is then passed onto the Manager Student Services Senior School/Year 12 Coordinator who has an intricate knowledge of the pathways to WACE achievement and who has nurtured many cohorts of Year 12’s through this pivotal time.
