The Student Services Team provides strategic support to all students and their families so that the achievement and wellbeing of our young people can be maximised. The work of the Student Services Team, in partnership with families and our community, will support the personal, social, cultural and emotional development of our students. This provides the best opportunity for our students to be well and engaged with the safe, orderly and effective learning environment in our school.
