Student wellbeing

The core business of school communities is the teaching and learning of students. Everything that schools and teachers do is focused on improving learning outcomes for all students.

The wellbeing team comprises a range of dedicated and professional staff members and works closely with students, staff and parents to provide the earliest possible intervention to support and maintain the wellbeing of our students.

A year adviser is allocated to each year group. This structure allows year advisers to effectively address age and stage-related problems that sometimes exist within that year group.

The year advisers are responsible for the wellbeing, and its impact on the learning of students, of their year group. Parents unsure about whom to speak to about their child's education should contact the year advisers. Moreover, students are encouraged to approach their year advisers to seek resolution to conflicts or to support them with issues impacting their education.

The following personnel will be looking after assigned year groups:

  • Year 7 adviser – Ms Jessica McCure
  • Year 8 adviser – Mr Shane Hill
  • Year 9 adviser – Ms Jiwanjot Kaur
  • Year 10 adviser – Ms Doreen Maharaj
  • Year 11 adviser – Mr Christopher Hawkes
  • Year 12 adviser – Mr Rhys McKean
