School counselling staff are members of the school learning and support team.
A teacher may recommend the service by referring a student to the school’s learning and support team. As a parent or carer, you may refer your child directly to the school counselling service. Students can also self-refer to the service.
The school counselling service can:
support students who are worrying about school work, friends, getting in trouble at school or feeling down
help parents and carers make decisions about your child’s education
assess a student’s learning and behaviour
help teachers and students identify and address disabilities that may affect learning
liaise with other agencies regarding student wellbeing.
School counselling is confidential.

The role of the teacher is to assist the school to cater for students K-6 who are experiencing difficulties in literacy and mathematics. This position is shared with other schools. Assistance is provided for class teachers, executive and parents to assess students and develop and implement appropriate programs according to individual needs. Parent/Community tutors and P & C employed personnel provide valued input and support.
The before school hours 'MultiLit' program at LEPS must take considerable credit for our outstanding literacy in recent years. Our extremely talented and committed LEPS STLA (Support Teacher Learning Assistance) teacher, Nicole Richards has successfully administered the reading program for 5 years, using trained parent and Stage 3 students to support her.
The 30 minute program is offered to Year 1 and Year 2 students from 8.45am Mon - Thurs in the library and provides targeted students with an explicit and individualised program that fast tracks their reading skills.
It's continued success is always dependent on dedicated voluntary parent and peer tutor assistance. If you'd like to get involved, please email and inform the school.
