Student Support / Welfare

The student support and guidance network in the College works to ensure the care and welfare of all our students. Although all teachers in the school contribute to the well-being of students, members of the Guidance Network have particular responsibility in this area.

  • Pastoral Care of Students
  • The Tutor Teacher forms the basis of the network and plays a key role in providing for the pastoral care of students in their form.
  • Each year level has a Dean who is responsible for the organisation of a year level and who works closely with form teachers and class teachers.
  • The school has a fully trained and experienced Guidance Counsellor, Gary O’Brien, who is available to assist, in confidence, with any personal or academic difficulties. Students and parents are encouraged to make contact when they feel they need help and support.

Careers Information

  • Students can make individual appointments to discuss their future careers or study plans with our Careers Advisers, Pani Kerehoma and Gary O’Brien. Pani also co-ordinates the Transition Gateways programmes, and work placements for students.
  • A Careers Database is available to students on the computers on the School Network.
  • Visits and talks from a wide variety of people and organisations are arranged.
  • Student Development Programmes
  • A Peer Support Programme is in place to assist students to make the transition to High School a positive and enjoyable experience. Year 13 leaders are placed with small groups of Year 9 students and each week participate in a graded series of social skill exercises.
  • The Learning Support Faculty caters for the special individual needs of some of our students. The Learning Support staff are available to assist teachers with the development of programmes and with teaching strategies.
  • The Education Development Centre was established in 1998 as a centre where students who impeded the progress of others through inappropriate or unacceptable behaviours could be placed. The aim of the centre is to provide an opportunity for students to demonstrate their willingness to move back into normal classes and the Centre focuses on modifying student behaviour and providing a time-out facility where they can reflect on their schooling while continuing their studies.

Student Welfare

Educational Development Centre
The Educational Development Centre within the College campus provides comprehensive academic support and advice from a fulltime specialist teacher who focusses on the individual needs of those students requiring additional help and guidance in their studies. Confidential help with personal and health concerns is available to all students.

Career Guidance Office
A very experienced fulltime career advisor is available through the Career Guidance Office. Students and parents can make use of this service as they consider course options and combinations related to possible career paths. Career and employment information is available on request from the office.
