At Copperfield College we make every effort to ensure that no student falls through the cracks.
Our dedicated Student Wellbeing Team ensures that any students experiencing difficulty have a place to go ad find support.
The Team comprises:
Three school psychologists – Judy Scarfe, Esmerelda Lambe and Sarah Pearson who provide us with a Student Counselling Service and wellbeing services such as advocacy, support and referral.
A Student Wellbeing Coordinator – Mary Scott who also provides wellbeing services and student counselling.
A Secondary Health Promotion Nurse – Michael Malady who provides school health promotion and advises families and individuals about a broad range of adolescent health issues.
A School Doctor – Dr Jason Wu, GP, who represents the Doctors in Secondary Schools Program and is in attendance between 10.00 am. and 2.00 pm. at the Health Centre at Delahey on the second and fourth Fridays of the month, at Kings Park Campus on the first Friday of the month, and at Sydenham Campus on the third Friday of the month.
Students or parents can make an appointment at any time using the following online booking system and select the service for the relevant campus:
- If making a booking from the school network, no password is required.
- If making an appointment from home or outside the school network, the student’s code is required.
Kings Park Medical Centre, First Aid officers and Wellbeing staff can see the appointments.
Each student will receive confirmation of their appointment by:
- At the junior campuses, a slip passed on to the student by their Home Group Teacher on the morning of their appointment
- At the senior campus, a slip given to the student by their first teacher of the day.
