Student wellbeing

At Sandringham College we place a strong emphasis on student wellbeing and offer a vast array of support.
Our support network

Key to our effective support of student learning and wellbeing is strategic allocation of a fulltime Wellbeing Coordinator at each campus. Our extensive support network includes an Additional Learning Support Co-ordinator (who works across both campuses), Student Managers, Headspace Psychologists (located at each campus on a part time basis), DET SSSO staff and local Social and Youth Work services.
