Student health and wellbeing are fundamental to inclusion in school activities. St Columba’s provides an environment where staff and students feel respected and their physical and psychological health is supported and promoted.
At St Columba’s we believe that education is about considering the whole child. The Catholic Education Office Ballarat have a strong and committed welfare team that works with a range of organisations to provide the necessary support for students and their families both at school and home. Students and families at St Columba’s are able to access any of these services when needed.
If you have an issue you would like to discuss or feel you or your child needs l support please contact either the Principal, Kim Butler or Special Needs Coordinator, Megan Walton.
Our School Welfare Support Officer is Narelle White. Narelle is a trained counsellor who is able to provide individual counselling sessions to students. Currently Narelle works two days per week. If you feel your child might benefit from working with Narelle, please contact the school office. All enquires will be handled with the strictest confidence.
