Wellbeing

There may be times when you and your family have an issue that is impacting on your schooling which needs sensitive and confidential attention. It might be a health, family or personal problem. Either way, at St Mary of the Angels we have Wellbeing Support and Counsellors who can provide professional support to you. This can be an alternative to the Homeroom teacher or Year Level Team Coordinator (who would generally be the people you first approach about school concerns).

Exploring the issue with one of us might help you to find the right solution to your situation. We can confidentially chat in the privacy of our wellbeing room (near student reception). We can support families in a variety of ways including making an appointment with other community services that specialise in your particular area of concern. Please remember, we welcome you and your family to our school. We care about you and there is always someone here at St Mary of the Angels to provide you with wellbeing support.

St Mary of the Angels’ approachable Wellbeing Team includes:

• Tim Campbell (Deputy Principal – Wellbeing & Development)
• Sandy Carver (Wellbeing Officer) - Monday to Thursday
• Carmel Mithen - Monday, Tuesday & Friday
• Lauren McKinnon - Wednesday & Thursday
