College Counselling

Ensuring that our students are equipped for future success is central to our school life.

Our College Counselling Team will guide and support our students as they prepare for life beyond our school.  With specialists from English, French and German speaking countries, the team provides structured information and guidance across a range of further education options. 

In close collaboration with the Principal, tutors, class teachers and parents, our students begin their preparation at the start of Grade 9, researching courses, universities and entry requirements. They are encouraged to define their goals for the future and challenged to think broadly about their future aspirations.

Throughout this process, our counsellors are there to challenge and support decision making and are available to meet with both students and parents.
