School counselling service

School counselling staff are members of the school learning and support team.

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.

For more information about learning and support teams and the school counselling service, visit:

Our current school counsellors are: Mr Paul O'Reilly and Ms Carmen Thorne.

Mr O'Reilly is available on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Ms Thorne is available on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays.

You can make an appointment to see Mr O'Reilly or Ms Thorne by visiting the counsellor's office during break-times or by phoning the school office on 02 4658 1110.
