Student Support Services

Horsham College has multiple programs and supports in place to ensure school is a safe and supportive environment for all students.

Student Engagement and Wellbeing structures ensure support for students, with 4 sub-school teams across Junior, Middle and Senior Year Levels; and the Alternate Programs. Each school has an Assistant Principal, as well as Leading Teachers and two Year Level Coordinators supporting each year level. Each student is also assigned a Form Group teacher with whom they meet with each morning before Period 1. These staff are available to discuss any wellbeing and education concerns from students and families.

More intensive support for student wellbeing and mental health is provided through the Wellbeing Team, supporting students at each Year Level. The wellbeing team provide low-level wellbeing support, and can also refer to relevant agencies where students require more specified support.

We are fortunate to have a strong School Chaplaincy, who also play an important role in the school; meeting with small groups of students and arranging a Breakfast Club on a number of mornings throughout the week.

Other programs/connections that we use to support students are:
– the LLEN Mates Mentoring program
– the McKenzie Creek Advance Program (and other Alternate Programs) for students that require additional support and resources
– integration support for students with Disability funding
– Koori Education Support Officers
– English as an Additional Language staff

If you would like to know more about any of these programs and offerings, please call the College to speak to one of the Student Engagement and Wellbeing Team.
