Our aim is to provide students with a caring environment that helps them in their educational, social and career needs.
The guidance network is an integral part of our school.
Students and parents are welcome to use the school’s counselling services. Parents may contact one of the counsellors if there are home matters which may have a bearing on school performance. Counsellors may contact or visit the home for the welfare of the student.
The counsellors also make referrals to community agencies and maintain a close liaison with Special Education Service, Children and Young Persons Services, Youth Aid, Whanau Support, Whirinaki and other helping agencies.
