•  ‘Seasons for Growth’ – a program for children to deal with grief and loss
•   Working with students to assist during difficult times in their life
•  Our wellbeing program works together with our behaviour management process to develop respectful relationships and restore broken ones.

The staff at St Michael’s liaise with professionals to assist students in the classroom and playground.  Staff are also able to work with families in seeking help from professionals for their children, in order to meet a variety of needs.

St Michael’s also offers the opportunity for parents to undertake ‘Parenting Toolbox’, a 6 week parenting course held in conjunction with St Michael’s Lutheran Church.  The course is offered to parents of 3 different age brackets.
