As a team our role is to make sure that all students have the opportunity to be successful and achieve their learning goals. Whatever this journey may look like and whatever barriers might exist.

We work actively with students and those that are involved with their care - in school with teachers and mentors and outside of school with guardians and others. 

What do we actually do?

Our nurses are available daily to help and support students and their needs in regards to their health. 

We have two school counsellors who you can talk to about anything, whether it be school related or home related. They are here to guide you and to listen whatever the issue may be. There is never something to small or to big to talk about and if we can't help you directly in the school, we can always guide you in the steps to seek help via external agencies.

Follow our Student Care account!
