School Medical Clinic
As part of the Doctors in Schools program we now have a School Medical Clinic on the school grounds. Students are able to access an adolescent-health trained GP and will not incur any out-of-pocket expenses as they are billed through Medicare.
The clinic is open on Thursday from 10am – 2pm.
To make an appointment: Text 0401 790 065 with your preferred time and the Practice Nurse will text back to confirm. Or Email Sharon Parbery at firstname.lastname@example.org or see her in her office or around the school.

Alexandra SC Chaplain
The Chaplain at Alexandra SC is funded through the Federal National School Chaplain and Student Welfare Program. John Leary works with us for 2 days a week and supports students, staff and families in their wellbeing and education. Participation in any part of the services offered by the Chaplin are voluntary.
John participates in a range of programs to build relationships with the students and provide pastoral care. An example of this is our BERMS program with a group of students who were working to increase their confidence, leadership and teamwork skills. He also assists staff and students in a range of classes and, as a part of the Welfare team, is available to chat with students, staff and parents if they request some one-on-one support.
Alexandra Secondary College since 2012 has undertaken the move to being an eSmart School. eSmart aims to make cybersafety a normal part of everybody’s life by equipping them, students, to use technologies in ways that are positive and that protect them from the potential risks. The first major focus of eSmart is to help schools create a cultural norm of smart, safe and responsible use of digital technologies. eSmart is an initiative of The Alannah and Madeline Foundation.
