Our school is privileged to have a team of health and welfare specialists who are available immediately when students and their families need help.
We have a Wellbeing Team that specialise in many focal areas, yet work as one unit to provide a complete service to the students and families in our College.
If students have a developmental problem or require extra services, we refer them to our speech therapist, doctor or other health or family specialists available on site.
This is part of our wrap-around approach to service delivery. We make sure problems are identified early so that students and their families can quickly get expert help.
