Broome SHS


Pastoral Care

Broome Senior High School places a high priority on ensuring that students are happy and comfortable. Our Student Services (SS) team—comprising of the Student Services Manager, Year Leaders, Deputy Principals, School Psychologist and other staff—is a highly skilled and effective group that supports students in many ways. They cater for the physical, social and emotional wellbeing of students at school, allowing them to reach their full potential.

Each year group has a Year Leader who coordinates all communication, activities, camps, and through consultation with form teachers, the pastoral care for students and families within their year group.

Parents and carers are always welcome at Broome Senior High School.
