Guidance Officer

The Guidance Officer at PBC works closely with several other staff to help students with:

  • Careers (pathway options; info about university, TAFE and private colleges)

  • Subject Selection (electives from Year 9 to 11; levels of difficulty for Maths and English)

  • Senior Schooling (OP, Rank, QCE, SET Plans)

  • Educational difficulties (disabilities, literacy, numeracy, bullying)

  • Special programs (alternatives to full-time schooling) 

  • Basic personal counselling (referrals are made to specialists in the community for students needing intensive counselling)

Our PBC Student Guidance Officers are Anna Willis and Steve Jones during school term.

Nurse

Hilary Wilson is our School Based Youth Health Nurse (SBYHN). Her role is to assist young people with issues affecting their health and wellbeing. Hilary also provides support for the school curriculum and health promotion activities. Students make appointments for a confidential consultation with the Nurse directly through her office.​​

Report Bullying 

The school has a zero tolerance to bullying commitment. If your student experiences or witnesses any incident that they believe may be bullying make sure it is reported. It can be reported to a teacher, the Year Coordinator or the Dean of Students.

Similarly, if you have a welfare concern or would like to alert us that you are concerned someone may be experimenting with drug or alcohol usage, please contact the Dean of Students. Your communications are treated as confidential and our initial concern is always the wellbeing of students.​

 

Working to Stymie the cycle of teenage bullying and harm at PBC

www.stymie.com.au encourages students to support their peers by making anonymous notifications through their site. These notifications will be about students who you see being bullied or experiencing harm at PBC. You can also make notifications about illegal activity and any other kind of harm to your school community.

These are anonymous alerts sent to Stymie and are designed to keep our young people safe. If a friend is being harmed in any way - let someone know. The first conversations we have, will be with the student who is experiencing harm - they will know they are not alone.
