Student Wellbeing During Remote Learning
At Princes Hill Secondary College, our student wellbeing program focuses on providing relevant and meaningful support and information to all students, their friends and families about their emotional, social, mental and physical wellbeing. While we are engaged in home learning, the wellbeing support program will continue to provide support to young people via phone, zoom and email.
Call 9389 0617 during school hours to speak to Felicity, the Student Wellbeing Coordinator or email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss any wellbeing or mental health concerns you have. You can also call to chat about a friend you are worried about. Parents and carers are very welcome to contact Felicity to talk about the support needs of your child. Information and referrals to external supports can also be provided. Appointments with the PHSC Educational Psychologist (Kelly), or our Mental Health Practitioner (Jess) can also be requested by contacting Felicity.
