School counselling staff are members of the school learning and support team.
A teacher may recommend the service by referring a student to the school’s learning and support team. As a parent or carer, you may refer your child directly to the school counselling service. Students can also self-refer to the service.
The school counselling service can:
support students who are worrying about school work, friends, getting in trouble at school or feeling down
help parents and carers make decisions about your child’s education
assess a student’s learning and behaviour
help teachers and students identify and address disabilities that may affect learning
liaise with other agencies regarding student wellbeing.
School counselling is confidential.

We acknowledge the Wangal people of the Eora Nation, who are the Traditional Custodians of the land along the southern shore of the Parramatta River.
We pay our respects to the Elders, both past and present, and to those of the future, for they hold the memories, the traditions, the cultures and the hopes of Aboriginal Australia.
We must always remember that under the concrete and the asphalt upon which Newington P.S. was built, this land is, was and always will be, traditional Aboriginal land.
