Learning Support / Pastoral Care

At Bullsbrook College we want all members of our school community to feel that they are welcome and that they belong. Our goal is that our students have a positive schooling experience and leave school with the capability and focus to live personally fulfilling lives.

Our Learning and Support team is dedicated to providing a holistic approach to student care and is supported by some special team members. 

 

Psychologist

The School Psychologist provides support in the areas of social-emotional well-being, study skills, transition, positive relationships and life skills. Specific therapeutic approaches, such as counselling on a variety of personal, social and emotional issues can also be provided for students and parents.

Student in Years 10-12 can self-refer by seeking an appointment with the School Psychologist directly via email. Younger students can be referred by parents or Learning Support staff and teachers.

Days at the school – Monday to Wednesday

The Chaplain is available to help in times of need or crisis offering care and support through counselling and mentoring, including assisting students who are bullied, isolated, or experiencing difficult times including anxiety, family breakdown, illness and loss.

Reach out to the Chaplain

During this current period of rapid change to our normal daily life the way we also reach out for support may also need to change. Our school chaplain will be available to offer support to students through the school holidays (April 10 – 28) as well as throughout term 2. This may be arranged as skype sessions or phone calls.
