To support the needs of our students, a Guidance Officer specialising in educational psychology visits Buderim Mountain State School at least two days a week. Their role is to work with staff and families to support the needs of students with disabilities, underperforming students, gifted students and troubled students. Their work has academic, social and emotional aspects.

Generally, any issue that might impact adversely on a student’s well-being or life chances at school can be referred to the Guidance Officer. Activities undertaken by the Guidance Officer include standardised intellectual ability and achievement assessments, functional behaviour assessments, contributing to intervention plans, developmental counselling for a range of issues including grief and relationships, social skilling and support for positive ‘parenting’ (the family has a critical role in the welfare of students at the school). Referrals are generally made through the School Administration or the class teacher to the school’s Support Team.
To make an appointment with our Guidance Office, please contact Vannessa Scheltinga through our administration office on (07) 5477 2777 or email info@budemounss.eq.edu.au
