Student Services

The Student Services team offers a range of services to students at Mount Ridley P – 12 College and operates from our purpose built Wellness Centre called ‘Berkshire’. Our well-structured student wellbeing framework complements student academic success.  Members of the Student Services team can provide one on one individual support; facilitate group work based around social skills; and make referrals to appropriate agencies and external professionals when required.  These agencies include Headspace, Foundation House (refugee and asylum seeker services) and the Royal Children’s Hospital.  The team also works in collaboration with Department of Education and Training support staff and community agencies to identify, design implement and deliver a range of programs to meet the needs of our students.
