The Guidance and Counselling Service at Indooroopilly State High School further promotes the forward thinking ethos of our school community. We acknowledge that our students are people first and that adolescence can be a stressful time in a young person’s life. Similarly we acknowledge that emotional and physical wellbeing are critical factors in the teaching and learning process.
The Guidance service seeks to support the young person to balance the stresses or barriers to learning that sometimes materialise in their life so that they can be an active member of the school community. In being active members of our community, students will develop knowledge and confidence to pursue an educational pathway that is suitable to their needs. Additionally they will have the skills and confidence beyond our confines to create a life that is personally meaningful.
In support of the Indooroopilly vision, the Guidance Officers provide Guidance and Counselling services to all members of our school community. This includes parenting information, time management planning, stress management, career guidance, conflict resolution and mediation, course selection and subject changes, tertiary study advice, OP information, Selection Rank information, student illness management planning and a full range of counselling issues.
The Guidance Officer also specialises in enrolling students from overseas or interstate.
