The role of the Guidance Counsellor is to provide support for the school community, particularly students, their parents or guardians. Guidance Counsellors are registered teachers and possess appropriate post graduate qualifications.

How this is achieved

The Guidance Counsellor offers a confidential counselling service for students, parents and guardians. The Guidance Counsellor also liaises with a network of agencies and individuals, both within and outside the school.

Issues addressed by the Guidance Counsellor
The issues addressed can be categorized under three broad areas:
  • Career: e.g. information about post-school options, course and career selection.
  • Academic: e.g. subject selection, time management, study skills.
  • Personal & Social: e.g. relationship problems, problems at home, coping with stress.

How to contact the Guidance Counsellor

  • Students and parents can make appointments by emailing or calling the guidance department directly:                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    Guidance Counsellor
