Guidance officer


​The guidance support service is provided to Tully State High School to assist students to maximize their potential and to address their concerns with care and dignity.

A guidance officer supports students with personal counselling, in the following areas: grief, separation, family break-up and divorce, crisis, depression, anxiety, friendship concerns, medically orientated behaviour concerns, stress, self-esteem, time management, study skills and interpersonal conflict management.

Educational counselling includes: assisting students with appropriate placement, assessing students to determine their level of educational needs and liaising with other appropriate personnel and outside agencies to meet the individual education requirements of students.

The guidance officer works closely with the senior co-hort to assist them in applying for tertiary courses and consulting students about alternative pathways once they leave school.
