School Counsellors

School Counsellors


School Counsellors are employed by the NSW Department of Education (DoE) to assist students with a variety of educational, social and emotional issues. They can provide a number of services, including individual psychological assessments, counselling, educational assessments and assistance for students with special needs. School Counsellors work closely with the School Executive, Student Advisers, Careers Adviser, Support Teacher Learning Assistance and other staff to help individual students achieve their goals. They also provide a link between feeder primary schools and Cecil Hills High School, enabling a smoother transition into high school for many Year 7 students.
