At Lalor North Secondary College we encourage students to accept the challenges that are offered and to grasp all the opportunities to improve their learning outcomes.
We value education of the whole person and strive to encourage learning in all areas: academically, physically, and emotionally. This is important because, in a young person’s life, there are times when they may need assistance in resolving a variety of issues.
The College has school counsellors who are available for counselling and support. Referrals to the Student Support Team are given to the Student Welfare Coordinator. If specialist services are required, it may be necessary to refer students to external agencies. Parents/guardians will be informed prior to such referrals.
The Student Counsellor, Psychologist, School Nurse and Social Worker are available to speak with students and families about any concerns or issues with which they may need assistance.
Our Student Services Team has access to Speech Pathologists available through the Northern Region. Speech assessments can be conducted at our College and feedback to parents is given. Further follow-up is provided if required.
The Integration Team at Lalor North College includes a coordinator and aides who cater to the needs of students with disabilities.
Students managed by the Integration Team have individualised learning plans and classroom aides. We believe that every student has the right to the best possible educational opportunities in an academic, physical and social sense.
Our aim is to ensure that all of our students achieve their full potential whilst at school while readying them for life in the world outside.
