Heatley SS Student Services and support programs

At Heatley State Primary School, we believe it takes a village to raise a child. Students who are troubled or having difficulties need support. This may be formal support organised by parents or staff, or it may be informal support offered by friends or family.

If your child is in need of support, please approach the classroom teacher in the first instance to discuss options available at our school.

People who can help at Heatley State School are:

Class teachers

Community Education Counsellor - Mrs Patty Burns

Guidance Officer - Mrs Lynda Ross

Head of Special Education Services (HoSES) - Mrs Wendy Burton

Deputy Principal - Mrs Noreen Letizia

Quality T&L Support Teacher - Mrs Kim Creek

Quality T&L Support Teacher - Mrs Caron Cooke

School Chaplain - Adam Ginn

Principal - Louise Wilkinson

Please call 47595333 and ask to speak with the person who you think may be able to help you.

Mrs Wendy Burton is the chairperson of Heatley SS Additional Support and Advice Team (ASA Team). This group is made up of specialist staff who meet regularly to determine the necessary level of support and intervention required for students at risk of disengaging from school or those with special needs. They use a Case Management approach as part of a whole school approach to supporting students at the school .
