STUDENT SUPPORT SERVICES
At Morrinsville College we provide a range of Student Support Services for both our students and their whānau (family). The support services available include academic support, health and well-being, counselling services and career pathways.
At Morrinsville College we value the health and well-being of our students. We offer free and confidential counselling and support for all of our students. We are also available to support whānau if you have concerns about your son or daughter. Our counsellors are qualified professionals who are registered members of their respective professional organisations. They can offer counselling and support for a wide variety of experiences and challenges such as alcohol/drug misuse, giving up cigarette smoking, anxiety, depression, trauma related problems (emotional, sexual, violence and/or psychological), suicide related concerns, grief and loss, stress and relationship issues.

Learning Support Services
The Learning Centre provides individualised programmes that cater to the individual needs of students and assistance is offered to individual teachers and Learning Areas. At times, we withdraw students from class so that they can receive assistance for a wide range of specific learning challenges. Most of the time assistance is given to students in the classroom setting through the support of Learning Assistants.
The primary role of the Learning Centre is to promote the optimum inclusion of students with specific learning and behavioural needs. As such we work with our students and staff in some of the following ways:
Allocation of Learning Assistants support
Intensive Reading Programme,
Support students who qualify for special assessment conditions (i.e. Reader/writer)
