Childhood and adolescence can be a difficult and challenging time for some students.
Fortunately, school support staff are in a position to help students deal with these challenges by linking them to specialist staff on school grounds.
onPsych services are now available at Hamlyn Banks Primary School.
onPsych offer services to students and their families at no cost under the GP Health Plan. This will entitle the student/family member to a maximum of 10 BULK-BILLED individual sessions and 10 BULK-BILLED group sessions per calendar year with the onPsych staff member.
The staff member who is working at Hamlyn Banks PS is named Tayla McBean.
We are committed to emotional, social and psychological wellbeing and believe when this is achieved children can reach their fullest potential interpersonally, personally and academically.
If you believe that your child requires additional support at school, please contact your child's teacher, our Assistant Principal or Principal.
