Where to seek support

Lockdown has been a new experience for us all. To assist with any struggles we may have, it is important to talk to those we trust (via our devices) such as friends, family, teachers, guidance counsellors or our youth work team. See our website for a full list of contacts here.

Long Bay College has three guidance counsellors to support our students. Appointments can be made with any member of the team by email. The counsellor will be in touch to arrange an online session. Once school has fully reopened, we expect demand for appointments to increase, so please get in touch with the counsellors now.
