Student Wellbeing

School Counsellor

Holy Cross Catholic School is fortunate to have a School Counsellor who works closely with staff and parents to provide support to all children and families in need of assistance.

Our school counsellor, Jade Kremer is a Social Worker with many years experience working in mental health services supporting children and adolescents who present with significant mental health concerns, behavioural challenges and neurodevelopmental disorders.

The School Counsellor works at a number of Catholic Schools within the Diocese to offer time limited intervention and mental health support for students, working closely with families and our staff. Referrals can be requested by parents following consultation with the classroom teachers and the Principal. The counsellor will then arrange an interview to discuss support options with parents prior to meeting with students.
