Students in school face many new challenges and unfamiliar circumstances, which can create new stresses, such as increased workload, greater level of commitments, or just the unfamiliar changes of adolescence.
Guidance officers are specialist teachers who deliver a broad range of services to school community members, and contribute to the development of a student support and wellbeing program that is responsive to the needs of the school community.
Guidance officers may work directly with students in addition to working with a student's teachers, school support personnel, family, other specialists or external support providers. Support offered by guidance officers includes providing advice and counselling on educational, behavioural, vocational, personal, social, family, and mental health and wellbeing issues. Psychoeducational assessments and career development also form an important part of the work guidance officers undertake to enhance positive educational outcomes and career pathways for all students.
Parents and students are welcome to email GO@burnettsc.eq.edu.au to contact our guidance officer to ask a question or request an appointment.
