Student and staff wellbeing is a key consideration of Catholic schools in the Diocese of Armidale. The Catholic Schools Office has a working service agreement with Centacare New England Northwest regarding the provision of Catholic education and social welfare in the diocese.
Counselling services for both staff and students are available under this agreement. For staff this includes the Employee Assistance Program. Student counselling referrals are made through the school principal. Schools also have access to critical incident school support through Centacare. Other services provided under the agreement include: psychometric assessments, in-school support, parent programs and staff professional development in relation to wellbeing and mental health.
