STUDENT WELBEING PROGRAM
The Student Welbeing Program provides support to students, their families and College staff. The program provides a holistic service encompassing College and home life to help students navigate their way through their senior years at school and the transition from school to work. The program provides guidance on values and ethical matters as well as supporting students in dealing with matters of human relationships, bereavement and loss, family breakdown and other crisis situations.
The Student Support Officer (SSO), is a qualified Youth Worker with substantial experience in supporting young people. The SSO is able to assist students and parents with gaining access to a variety of services in the community and providing advocacy where appropriate. Through the program our students and their parents can access service such as counselling and advice on legal matters, accommodations support, Centrelink payments support, financial guidance and many others.
The Student Support Officer has established a network of services such as Headspace Maitland, Samaritans Youth Accommodation, Catholic Care, Youth off the Streets, Hunter Community Legal Centre and many other community services which can offer professional guidance and support.
The Student Wellbeing Program has guest presenters who conduct workshops on issues that help educate our students on matters such as Safe Celebrating, Safe Partying, Good Mental Health, and Safe Driving.
