School counselling service

Our School Counselling Staff

Our School Counsellor is Ms Sarah Farthing and she is available for students Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Parents and students can refer to the school counsellor themselves. The school counsellor can provide counselling, testing and information to parents and teachers and referral to other agencies as needed and is a very important part of our wellbeing team. 

Our Student Support Officer is Ray Acosta. He works across the school with individual students, with small groups and in the classroom. His key role is to work alongside our school counsellor, to help support students and their families. Ray is also an ex-student, so he knows the school community well and the challenges that can at times present themselves to our young men. 

A teacher may recommend the service by referring a student to the school’s learning and support team. As a parent or carer, you may refer your child directly to the school counselling service. Students can also self-refer to the service.

The school counselling service can:

  • support students who are worrying about school work, friends, getting in trouble at school or feeling down
  • help parents and carers make decisions about your child’s education
  • assess a student’s learning and behaviour
  • help teachers and students identify and address disabilities that may affect learning
  • liaise with other agencies regarding student wellbeing.

School counselling is confidential.
