SRC The NHS Student Representative Council has been elected for 2013. There was some very strong competition this year with up to 6 class members placing themselves up for election in some homeroom groups. The following students were successful and I look forward to another active and highly effective year with the 2013 SRC: India Russell, Jesse Piro, Madison Pearce, Braedyn Dwyer, Jacintha Misob, Lily Emmerton, Kiara Foggin, Savanne Canobie (Co-Treasurer), Molly Osborne (Co-Treasurer), Liyadari Alahakoon (Secretary), Jevon Forbes, Jack Kokles-Ridgeway, Lisa-Marie Kelly (Media representative), Alex Parfitt (Vice President of SRC), Charlotte Piper; Shannon Veltman, Monique Gilmore, Jasmine Body (Media representative), Keeley Lobenwein, Lanka Alahakoon (School Captain and President of SRC), Bintang Daly (School Vice-Captain), Christina Burke (Sports Captain) and Ian Rogers (Sports Captain). Some students will be sharing the role by alternating semesters. Introducing the School CounsellorKasey Lloyd Halfway through last year, while researching well-being in the mining industry for my then-job in Townsville, I came across this position advertised. Despite being happy where I was I applied on a whim. After a slightly drawn out recruitment process I packed up my belongings and moved interstate to a remote town I had never been to. So far, Im happy I did. I started halfway through last term and have been made very welcome by the staff and students of Nhulunbuy High School. Already I am proud to be a part of this school, where the staff genuinely care, not only about their students education but their health and well-being also. As the school counsellor, my main role is to support students to deal with any problems that might impact on their ability to perform well and enjoy their time at school. This includes dealing with issues like stress, grief and loss, relationships (with peers and parents), depression, anxiety, bullying and anger. Confidentiality is extremely important in counselling and this is explained to students in their first session. Generally, the information I share with teachers and parents is for the benefit of the student and with their permission. Some students will find one or a few sessions helpful, while others may require longer intervention. Students can self-refer to counselling or can be referred by teachers or parents. I can be contacted through the school office or by email me at kasey.lloyd@ntschools.net. Please feel free to get in touch and have a chat about any concerns regarding your childs wellbeing. Kind regards, Kasey Lloyd mailto:kasey.lloyd@ntschools.net
