Student services and support programs

Adolescence is a time of great change in a student’s life. At different stages of life they may be more comfortable talking with one person or group over another. The following people and programs are available to assist students in need of support or advice.

Academic guidance and support

Students are assisted in their education by specialist staff such as heads of department and the deputy principals. Every learning area has a Head of Department that manages the curriculum, assessment and reporting for that subject.  HODs are part of the leadership team at the school and can assist students with matters regarding missed assessment, class attendance and concerns about workload

Career guidance

Provides advice and guidance on a diverse range of matters pertaining to student education and welfare. The guidance officer is available to help and advise students and their parents on matters as diverse as subject selection, career paths, emotional and social problems, scholarships and tertiary admissions procedures.

Indigenous support

Indigenous support is a high priority with the education department and support personnel are available to assist across a range of issues.

Learning for Life program

Individual care is considered to be very important at Yeppoon State High School. This extended program covers a wide range of personal and career development programs for our students.

Year coordinator

Each year level has a staff member dedicated to assisting students with any inquiry they have about their schooling. The year level coordinators work with the school leadership body to provide management of the student body.

School-based youth health nurse

The school nurse is available at the school to provide students, with counselling on health-related issues, and also plays a part in a range of educational programs in the school, particularly in health, nutrition and human relationships.

School Chaplain

A joint program with local churches and Scripture Union Queensland provides a chaplaincy service at the school. This can be accessed by students if they need personal guidance or assistance. The chaplain offers a quiet place to be for those times when you just need someone to listen.
