How can we support you?

At times life can be difficult especially if you are having some personal or family problems and often having someone to listen can be helpful. We can also support you in sorting out any issues you may be having with friends, family, teachers or subjects.

How we work

Underpinning the way we work are a set of restorative values that guide the teaching, learning and nurturing of relationships as well as supporting staff, students and the school community as a whole.

Privacy

We are confidential, which means that anything discussed with you will not be discussed with anyone without your permission.

Should you be in danger of harming yourself or someone else then we would need to inform a parent or guardian. This would be done with permission if possible.

District staff such as psychologists can be accessed through the College to support students. We also link and work with many community agencies.

Special Provision

Special Provision provides eligible students with the opportunity to participate in and complete their secondary schooling studies. It aims to ensure that the most appropriate, fair and reasonable arrangements and options are available for students to demonstrate their capabilities when their learning and assessment programs are affected by illness, impairment or personal circumstances.

If you think you may be eligible for special provision or would like further information, please contact John Thompson

Chaplaincy at Mildura Senior College

Mildura Senior College is fortunate to have a school chaplain as a part of our wellbeing team.

Chaplaincy is a unique service that is of great value to our students, staff and parents, offering care, building the social skills of students, and encouraging responsible behaviour amongst our young people. Our chaplain works as an integral part of our Wellbeing Team along with our Student Wellbeing Coordinator and school Nurse. Together they offer individual support, they plan and implement wellbeing programs across the curriculum and they participate in a broad range of school coordinated activities such as school excursions, camps, sporting events and assemblies. Student engagement in this Program is of a voluntary nature.

Each year our school council seeks feedback from our school community in order to enable us to review and confirm support for the Program. We also maintain a risk management plan which is reviewed annually. School procedures are followed for parents and students to seek referral, manage complaints and to opt out of the Program
