Year Advisers

Year Advisers are an important part of Glenwood High School's welfare and academic supports.

The role of the Year Adviser is to provide guidance and promote the wellbeing of students in the relevant year group. They help teachers understand the practical needs of individual students every year and monitor trends in individual students in relation to academic progress, classroom behaviour, attendance, social behaviour, and adjustment. They refer students, where necessary, to the counsellor, Principal, Deputy Principal and Head Teacher - Welfare. Year Advisers disseminate appropriate information to school personnel regarding issues affecting students in the year.

The relevant Year Adviser is the best contact person at school to discuss academic progress, extended leave due to illness or holidays, or any other concerns or issues you wish to discuss regarding your child's education.
