A Guidance Officer visits the school one day a week. Contact with the Guidance Officer is arranged through the referral process with the class teacher or through contact with the Principal or Deputy Principal.
The Guidance Officer may complete some specific assessments to support the staff’s understanding of the student needs. There may be a possibility of short term counselling (4 weeks) if appropriate. This assists the Guidance Officer to understand the case more fully and then discuss possible referral on external agencies if required.
