What a School Counsellor is

Department of Education School Counsellor Resources

In all New South Wales government schools, there is a counsellor who is a qualified teacher and educational psychologist with special training to help students with any problems they are having, or to help them get information they may need.

This service is free and confidential.  

Why students see the counsellor

Students see a counsellor for a number of reasons:

  • Academic problems
  • Worries about progress
  • Indecision about staying at school
  • No quiet place to study at home
  • Personal problems
  • Sadness in missing your country/friends
  • Feeling lonely at school
  • Feeling anxious about making friends
  • Home problems such as not getting along with family members

Multicultural education

Our school welcomes students, families and community members from all cultural backgrounds. We appreciate difference and diversity. We aim to provide a culturally inclusive and responsive learning environment that benefits all students.

Our teaching and learning programs develop intercultural understanding, promote positive relationships and enable all students to participate as active Australian and global citizens. Our school fosters student wellbeing and community harmony by implementing anti-racism and anti-discrimination strategies that encourage engagement by parents and carers from all backgrounds.

The Multicultural Education Policy outlines the NSW Department of Education’s commitment to providing opportunities that enable all students to achieve equitable education and social outcomes and participate successfully in our culturally diverse society.

The Anti-Racism Policy confirms the department’s commitment to rejecting all forms of racial discrimination in NSW public schools and eliminating expressions of racism in its learning and working environments.
