The friendly and supportive culture at John Tonkin College is recognised by the community as one of our strengths. Our students are happy, funny and enthusiastic and it takes a team of people to keep our students feeling great and conducting themselves in a socially responsible way.
Some young people will have challenges along the way and our Student Services Team steps in to provide a support structure where needed. Physical and mental wellbeing is a priority as well as attending school regularly and behaving in a positive manner.
Above all else, we aim to instill our students with a resilient mindset as life can sometimes lead us down bumpy roads.
The Student Services team includes:
- Student Services Manager (one on each site)
- Year Coordinators
- School Psychologists
- School Nurses
- External Youth Workers from local agencies
Vital support at the right time means that the students can really improve and have the support for them to be able to be the best they can be. They trust us and that trust is well deserved.
