There is always someone to talk to…

We all have times when we feel worried, sad, angry, overwhelmed or we just want to talk to someone. There are people around you who care and who are willing to spend time talking with you. Have you thought of talking to:

Parents Aunts & uncles Family friends

Sports coaches Youth leaders & Pastors School counsellors

Pastoral Care teachers Class teachers Year Advisors

If you are unsure about starting a conversation with an adult, why not ask a trusted friend to come with you and let them help you start to talk?

If none of these adults are available, there is still always someone to talk to. You could ring KidsHelpline, or log onto eHeadspace. The details for these and other places to talk with someone are listed below.

Counsellors are available at school every day.

Mr Kennedy (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday)

Mrs Davey (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday)

Mrs Schroder (Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday)

Simply go to the student office in B block and they can set you up with the appropriate person or even book an appointment that suits both you and the counsellor you wish to visit.

Being a bystander is never an option…
