Social Workers work together with our young men, their families and the school. Our aim is to provide support to students who need assistance in all different levels.

As part of the Pastoral Care team whom consist of a school Counsellor, Nurses, the Careers Advisor, Learning Support and Mr Charles: Assistant Principal and head of the Pastoral Care team.

Social Workers in Schools is a concept developed to work alongside young people and their families. Chanel works alongside our teachers and is the ‘bridge maker’ between school and families. He works with young men in understanding their holistic well-being. This can work, either with the individual, a group or the family if necessary.

We undertook most aspects of program delivery including needs analysis, participant assessment, program planning and program operation.  This process will develop a positive attitude within the young men.

The programs on offer at De La Salle College are: Seasons for Growth, Travellers, USO group, Brothers of Service,  weekend activities and student mentoring.

Mr Alataua would be happy to meet with any families who may have some concerns regarding their son.
