Wellbeing Team

The Monterey Student Wellbeing Team offers support to students, teachers and families in relation to problems and concerns that may be having an effect on a student’s academic achievements and development at school. Such concerns may involve personal problems, friendship difficulties, family issues, learning and behavioural difficulties and health concerns. Resources within the school and in the local community are available to help address these issues and can be utilised with the assistance of the Student Wellbeing Team.

The Student Wellbeing Co-ordinator is responsible for developing programs within the school that address students needs and assist them to develop skills in coping with life situations and their education, with emphasis given to developing each student’s self-confidence and self-esteem. Student Wellbeing at Monterey addresses the wellbeing of all students, through programs, student support, counselling and family support. We seek to promote responsible behaviour and develop resilience in students through positive relationships, opportunities for wide-ranging participation and high expectations of positive attitudes to learning.

Our wellbeing team consists of:

  • Student Wellbeing Co-ordinator
  • Kate Shanks and Tasmin Lewis, School Chaplains
  • Renee Molloy, School Nurse
  • Koori Engagement Support Officer
  • School-Based Psychologists

If you have any concerns relating to your childs wellbeing, please do not hesitate to contact the school.
