John Fawkner College provides student welfare support to ensure student wellbeing issues can be addressed confidentially, sensitively and within appropriate time frames.

The school currently employs wellbeing staff who are able to support students in dealing with a variety of issues including personal issues, family issues, study difficulties, school engagement, uniform or books.

Teachers at the college are also encouraged to refer students who exhibit anxiety or concerning behaviours for counselling to address any problems that may prevent students from feeling safe or comfortable at school.

Students also have access to a Psychologist who is able to work with students and families after referral from the student’s General Practitioner. The Psychologist currently visits the school once a week.

The Student Wellbeing department also provides whole year level workshops with external facilitators based on issues covering student wellbeing including bullying, responsible partying, study skills and the promotion of self-esteem and a ‘can do’ attitude.
