Our Guidance officer may work directly with the student or with the student's teachers, support personnel, family, other specialists, or professionals from other agencies depending on the issues to be resolved and the age of the student. A range of issues may be supported by guidance officers including personal and social development, diverse learning styles and needs, and educational pathways.
The Guidance officer may offer services in the form of psychometric assessment, counselling, behaviour management, social skilling and parenting assistance.
Guidance officers, whilst respecting client privacy and confidentiality, work as members of our support team and are committed to providing quality education services to enhance the educational opportunities for every young Queenslander regardless of their circumstances.
Referrals to the Guidance Officer are made through the Special Services Action Committee. Parents may contact the Guidance officer directly, however, it is suggested that parents discuss the matter first with the class teacher or if necessary the Principal or Deputy Principal.
