Our Student Services team consists of a number of specialist staff who work in partnership with our teachers, parents, and where required, outside support agencies to improve the education outcomes for all of our students.
The Student Services teams are managed by the Associate Principal – Student Services, Julie-Anne Paterson. The Lower School Student Services team consists of a Year Coordinator for each year level. The Upper School team consists of a Year Coordinator, a Student Services Manager and teachers who support students in Vocational Education and Training.

Our college Psychologist assists students with their educational, emotional and social needs. The psychologist plays an important role in providing advice to teachers and parents about programs and strategies to support our students in attaining positive mental health.
Our college Chaplain is on site from Monday to Friday and supports students through one on one counselling, and programs such as the Breakfast Club, which operates 5 days per week before school. The Chaplain works in collaboration with all Year Coordinators, supporting students and assisting them to engage with their education opportunities.
Fremantle College has a Community Health Nurse on site on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays. The Nurse is available to students before school, at recess, lunch time and after school. During class time, students may only attend the Nurse by appointment or with their teacher’s permission if their need is urgent.
In the event of sickness or injury at school requiring a student to be sent home or to a doctor, the parent or emergency contact person will be asked to arrange transport. In an emergency, an ambulance will be called at the parent’s expense. It is therefore recommended that families belong to an ambulance fund.
