Contracted by Centacare, MacKillop College is grateful to offer the girls valuable services through the Student Counsellors. The counsellors are situated at the school every day.
These Counsellors works closely with the Leader of Wellbeing, Year Coordinators, teaching and support staff, parents and community agencies. They operate within a whole school wellbeing framework, offering counselling and support on a one-on-one basis, group work, behavioural consultation, academic support, primary prevention workshops, need assessments, initial family support, training, upskilling staff and referrals and connections with community agencies.
The Counsellors aim to empower and support the girls in their overall mental health wellbeing, personal growth and academic achievements. They also seek to enhance their emotional intelligence, develop resilience, and enhance the abilities God gave them to reach their fullest potential.
