The health and wellbeing of our students, staff and community is a top priority.
Wellness Room (Nurse and First Aid)
- First Aid will be at the Main Office between 8am - 9am and 3pm - 4pm.
- First Aid will be at the Wellbeing Centre (Nurse) between 9am - 3pm.
- If a student needs to be collected from the Wellness Room they must follow this process:
- Parents/Caregivers need to go to the office to collect their daughter.
- When they arrive at the office, the office staff will advise the parent/caregiver on how to collect their daughter and the signing out process.
- If a student is Year 10 or under she must be collected from school. She cannot travel home alone.
At Marist College the care and development of the whole person is central to our philosophy. Therefore, the love and care of each other is the responsibility of every student and adult, part of our community.

The philosophy of the Guidance Counsellor is to listen to and support students so that they are able to learn and develop fully. All students may access this service through a self-referral process via email or directly at the Guidance Counsellor’s room. Looking out for the wellbeing of all students, Deans and whanau may also make student referrals to the Guidance Counsellor. When necessary, families may be supported to access specialised expertise of external agencies.
Guidance Counselling is private and confidential. The exception to this is in instances of serious harm to self and/or others where a Code of Ethics requires that further support is accessed. Students are informed of this expectation.Online bookings are available for our Counsellors through the link below:
