Supporting Students Through COVID 19
We are living through a really difficult time with social distancing and being isolated from friends and our support structures. Many students may be feeling anxious about a range of things.
The Student Services Team will continue to offer support to Elizabeth College students during normal school hours. Outside of school hours and during school break students should use the external agencies listed below.
To make an appointment to speak with an EC counsellor students and parents can phone Sarah on 62356559 or email on firstname.lastname@example.org during school hours. All appointments are currently being conducted by phone or teleconference.
