Guidance and Career Education
Guidance and Career Education Services are available for students from Pre Reception to Grade 12.

The students and Guidance Counsellors work as a partnership and are actively involved in the university process. Counsellors support each individual student with creating their personalised plan towards their new and exciting journey into post secondary education. The Guidance Counsellors partner with parents by offering an array of support and information via regular seminars and encourage parents to contact the Guidance Office with any questions or concerns they may have with regard to their child's education and development.
