Youth and Family Support Worker:

We provide many services to support all students and families including:

  • Personal and mental health counselling

  • Family consultation and support – help for parents around their child’s well being or educational needs
  • Referrals – help for students, parents and families to find the resources they need in the community
  • Presentations- classroom and parent presentations


All conversations between students and counsellors are confidential; that means that they do not share information with parents, teachers, other students or school administrators without permission from the student. Counsellors take their commitment to confidentiality very seriously. There are some circumstances, however, that they are legally obliged to break confidentiality for student safety. Counsellors will always inform students when they have to break confidentiality and discuss options with them.

Limits to Confidentiality:

  • When the student tells the counsellor that they (the student) or another person is at serious risk of being hurt or killed.
  • When the student tells the counsellor that they (the student) or another person has been hurt or abused.
  • In the rare event that a judge or court order requires a release of a student’s file.
