President's Welcome



​The Association of Counsellors in Catholic Secondary Schools Queensland (ACCSSQ) is excited to announce its 2019​ Conference.

We invite all with involvement and interest in Student Wellbeing across primary and secondary school settings to join with us as we engage with this year’s conference theme:


"Helping and Healing: Let’s address the tough issues"


The landscapes of our lives in our society, communities, schools, and families shift, evolve and present us with challenges to address and work with. Our work in keeping pace with these and the developmental and pastoral needs of our students asks us to keep up with the fields applicable to Student Wellbeing. We know we can do much through our own reading and research. But, we also know we can do even more when we connect with similarly focussed colleagues and what better way is there to do so than at a conference such as this one! We have an exciting line up of speakers this year including:  Dr James Scott,  Phill Nunn, Wayne Warburton  and many more.  We learn from invited speakers, from each other as we connect formally and informally with each other, from our own reflections – and at the same time, we enhance our own self-care.

Please come and join with us at our 2019​ Conference – we look forward to welcoming you.
