We have created a Wellbeing Page on Canvas for all students to access. This page outlines how you can access support through school and external agencies. We also have some tips on managing ‘self-care’ and looking after your wellbeing.

The Head Teacher Wellbeing, School Counsellor and Student Support Officer are all located in the Wellbeing Centre (upstairs near the music rooms). Students are encouraged to visit during break times to seek support as required.

Year 7 activities equipment can also be collected from here at the beginning of break times. 

Student Support Officer

We are very fortunate to have a full time Student Support Officer, Amanda Morgan, at our school. Amanda works within the school community alongside the Wellbeing, Learning and Support Teams and our School Counselling service to enhance student wellbeing and learning outcomes.

She has a pivotal role in working collaboratively with external child and family support agencies and other government agencies in their support of our students.

Breakfast club

Located at Kitchen 1 outside the year 7 quad, breakfast club operates 5 days a week from 8:30am to 8:50am. Supervised by volunteer teachers, breakfast club is operated by our students and includes toast with toppings, Milo and juice - all at no cost to students. It's not only a place to get energised for school but also to socialise with friends.

Everyone is welcome and encouraged to come along.

What is bullying?

Bullying and harrassment occur when people use and abuse power to trouble, annoy or oppress a person. Students should report bullying to the teacher who is supervising them.  That is, their classroom teacher at the time or the teacher on playground duty.

Stopping bullying starts with you!

  • treat everyone with respect
  • know that "put-downs" hurt others
  • help others who are being bullied.


If someone tries to bully you:

  • ignore them if possible
  • if you can, look them in the eye, tell them to "stop" and then walk away
  • ask for support from an adult.


If you have been bullied:

  • talk to an adult (parent, teacher) who can help you to stop the bullying
  • let your friends know what is happening
  • go  to places where you feel safe
  • keep on asking for support until the bullying is stopped.

For more information on what Maitland High School does to prevent and respond to bullying, read our anti-bullying procedure.

More information on bullying is available on the 'Schools A to Z' website.
