Guidance Officer: Melanie Stargard


​As the Guidance Officer here at Mareeba State School I work within different teams across the school setting to support students according to their individual needs.  I support our students by working with school staff, parents, carers and support agencies to make sure each student is provided with the best opportunity to succeed at school.  The support I offer involves:

  • assisting families to link up to different supports within the community such as Mareeba Community Centre, Mulungu, Child and Youth Mental Health Services and Counselling services;
  • working with teams made up of school staff, parents, carers and external agencies to support students to engage with their learning; and
  • spending time with students completing assessments to help provide information to their families and classroom teachers about their ways of thinking and learning.

I am part of a dedicated school team here at Mareeba State School that works hard to support our students to be happy and engaged at school.
