Student services and support programs

Pittsworth State High School offers a wide variety of support to students and parents.

Academic performance

Students should initially approach their subject teacher if they are concerned about their academic performance. If they have any further concerns students can also approach the relevant head of department, their head of year, or academic coach (Year 12 only).

Homework club

Homework club operates on a Wednesday afternoon from 3.15 pm to 4.15 pm. Staff from many subject areas are available to assist students with assessment and class work. Light refreshments are provided. Students, once present, are expected to stay for the duration of the session, 4.15 pm, unless a note is provided or they are collected (in person) by a parent.

Head of year

The head of year is the first point of contact for parents/carers if they have any concerns regarding their child's time at Pittsworth State High School. Heads of Year work extensively with their year level and as such are often the most knowledgeable on all aspects of a student's life at school. Students should remember that they can also see their Head of Year with any concerns during the school day.

Heads of department

The head of department for each subject area is responsible for the effective implementation of required curriculum. Subject specific enquires should be directed to them.

Home group teachers

HOme group teachers meet with students each morning for roll marking and notices. Individual messages to students are often passed on through these staff members.

Guidance officer

The guidance officer is available to help and advise students and their parents/carers on matters as diverse as subject selection, career paths, emotional and social concerns, scholarships and tertiary admissions procedures.

Youth support coordinator

The youth support coordinator provides support to students in years 10 to 12 to remain engaged in education and to enhance their opportunities for further education and employment.

School-based youth health nurse

The school nurse is based at the school to provide students with counselling on health-related issues and also plays a role in a range of educational programs, particularly in health, nutrition and human relationships.
