Counselling and Careers

Printer-friendly version

Nudgee College has two professionally qualified counsellors who assist with the counselling needs of the students of the College and, where appropriate, with the needs of parents and staff. The counsellors also perform the role of School Contact Officers in accordance with the EREA Student Protection Policy and are points of contact for students and staff when addressing issues of discrimination and harassment.
