Meet our Psychologist

At Sholem we value and prioritise the wellbeing of our students, staff and parents. We are committed to supporting and developing the ‘whole child’ and therefore each child’s physical, emotional and social wellbeing is a focus. 

We know that children need to feel safe and secure in order to learn. Our College psychologist provides specialised and individual support to students, providing strategies to assist children to cope and thrive within the College environment and beyond.

Together with our classroom teachers, we work towards developing the emotional literacy of all our students which leads to improved mental health outcomes.  

Our College Psychologist is able to conduct cognitive testing, which allows us to understand the unique strengths and weaknesses of individual students and cater to their learning needs.

Our Programs

The Resilience Project was implemented in 2022 and aspects continue throughout our ELC to support children's resilience and emotional wellbeing. Teachers and educators are continuously up skilled in the areas of Respectful Relationships. We place an enormous focus on 'respect' as a Lead School in the Respectful Relationships program, which is run from Prep to Grade 6.      

As part of our focus on the ‘whole child’, and the importance of keeping children safe and giving them tools to manage challenges in life, we run programs regarding body safety, sexual education and drug and alcohol education.
