Psychology As a part of our partnership with Catholic Education South Australia, we provide access to a highly experienced educational psychologist. The psychologist visits our school for two days, every term. With parent permission, he can observe children in class and complete assessments for social and emotional concerns and for academic or learning issues. The psychologist is available to meet with parents, on request. These services are provided for free. If any parent would like to find out more or has concerns about their child, please make a time to speak to the principal.
