The school has services of a visiting School Psychologist, Social Worker & Speech Therapist; a referral is made through the Student Wellbeing Services for access.
Anyone that attends Kyabram P-12 College and their family is welcome to access our Student Welbeing Services (SWS). Any time throughout the school day students can access SWS or make an appointment.
During class time, if it is essential to see SWS, students need their classeroom teacher to give permission for them to go to SWS and have their palnner signed.
A student will have a pre-organised appointment with SWS.
Students choose to see the SWS person of their choice, provided they are available at the time, otherwise another time would need to be arranged by appointment. Yearl level Coordinators work closely with the SWS Team and often refer or introduce young people to their services. If it is an emergency often the Village Principal would be the first port of call and Student Wellbeing Services would become involved as the need arose.
