Wellbeing News

Happy 2022 to all our Mordialloc College families!

 

With the start of the 2022 school year upon us I thought it was a good time to reintroduce the wellbeing team. We have had a few farewells and some new faces join us this year.

 

Wellbeing Team:

Melanie Raike – Mental Health Practitioner, new to the team this year, works Monday – Friday

Katie Haywood – Youth Worker, works Monday, Thursday

Pamela Johnson – Secondary School Nurse, works Tuesday, Thursday

Di Douglas – Director Student Wellbeing works Monday- Friday.

 

We farewelled Juliet O’Sullivan and will be appointing a new member to the team in the coming weeks.

 

If you would like to have a conversation with a member of the team please contact the school on 9580 1184 or email the team at  wellbeing@mc.vic.edu.au

 

Counselling – Mental Health Clinician

We are very fortunate to be working with the services of Innovative School Psychology in 2022. An external mental health counselling clinician will be available to meet with students fortnightly at school. If you have a Mental Health Care Plan from your GP for your child they can access this counselling service free of charge.

 

If you would like to discuss this opportunity please contact me to discuss further. The service will commence in March and there is currently no waitlist, which is great news for those seeking counselling support.

Director of Student Wellbeing
