Academic Coaching 

Our students are exposed to a variety of programs from Year 8 which enable them to develop their Set Plan into a dynamic document, of which they have the opportunity to revise and reflect at various stages. Set Plans are now recorded electronically on ‘One school’ so can therefore be accessed at any time by both students and parents.
For more information, refer to the Academic Coaching page.

Student Support

Through Senior Schooling there is a coordinated support network to address specific parental and student concerns that may impact on school academic performance, student behaviour or student wellbeing.  
Internally, the school utilises the expertise of its Guidance Officers, Year Level Coordinators and Student Support Teacher to manage these issues.  
There are personnel who make regular visits to school to lend more tailored support. These include the School Nurse, the School Chaplain, our Youth Support Coordinator and Youth Pathways Liaison Officer.
The school also accesses a myriad of agencies outside the school to handle particular student issues and support those most in need.
