An important part of school life is the pastoral side – taking care of students, teachers and parents social and emotional well-being.

Our Children’s Counsellors work in partnership with Catholic Primary Schools to offer support and information to help students’ well-being.  Working respectfully and collaboratively with students, parents/caregivers and teachers, they can assist with issues such as anxiety and depression, social skills, grief and loss, family breakdown issues, relationships, violence or abuse.

This service protects the confidentiality and privacy of children, young people and their families, except where the student’s safety is of concern.
