Kennedy Health Centre
The Kennedy Health Centre, located in the Handbury Centre for Wellbeing, is an on-campus clinic, open 24-hours during the school term, offering a safe and welcoming environment for student care.
We have a qualified team of staff at the Kennedy Health Centre who are available day and night to assess and care for students in the event of illness, accident or emergency.
Students who need overnight monitoring or isolation from their House can also stay overnight at the Centre, which accommodates up to nine students.
The GP clinic and physiotherapy services are also available to boarding students on campus by appointment.
If help is needed, students have several places and people to go to within the Corio community.
One of these is the on-site student counselling service that is provided by our qualified psychologists and counsellors at the Centre. This confidential support service is offered to all students to help identify and support educational, behavioural, emotional, psychological, social and developmental concerns.
Our professional team has a detailed understanding of the complex needs of our learning community and can assist in supporting students through transition and adjustment difficulties, stress and anxiety, sleep issues, family issues, friendships and relationships, indigenous support, gender diversity, sexuality, self-confidence, low mood and other matters that can arise through adolescence.
Sessions are arranged through self-referral, the Head of House or parent and guardians.
