Student Support Program
Dromana College has an extensive Student Support Program which underpins all academic and co-curricular programs at the college. The program emphasis is on the development and nurturing of a strong and positive relationship between staff and students and it is important that each student feels safe and secure. While at school the Head of Year and Pastoral Teachers are the students’ first point of contact. Each Head of Year/Pastoral Teacher takes a personal interest in each member of his/her form group. A student can go to their teacher for advice, guidance or support on a personal basis.
Head of Year is often a point of contact for students and parents. When issues of a personal nature arise the Head of Year work with the teachers and are responsible for the implementation of student management across each year level. They provide counselling and guidance on a whole range of student support issues including social adjustment, progress, behaviour and attendance.
The Student Wellbeing Coordinator is responsible for coordinating student wellbeing across the entire college. The Student Wellbeing Team works with students and parents on a range of issues including out of school referrals, assessments, school issues, counselling and attendance. They aim to address student concerns with care, respect, and confidentiality. Families and teaching staff may refer a student to any member of the wellbeing team, or students may self refer.
