Our student’s well-being is paramount. Student well-being impacts on learning. The Wellbeing Hub provides students with strategies to effectively address their issues and to successfully engage in school life.

It is offered onsite through the Wellbeing Hub. A GP referral (Mental Health Care Plan) and parent consent are required to access this service.
Students can make appointments by filling in a green slip in the Wellbeing Hub. The relevant counsellor will provide your HG Teacher with a blue slip stating your appointment day and time.
