Guidance Officer




My name is Yvonne Poweleit and I am the Guidance Officer (GO) at Isabella State School.  The children call me Miss Yvonne. I work with staff, parents and carers, often in conjunction with specialists and other community agencies to ensure educational access and participation in school life for all students. I also provide counselling, psycho-educational assessment and individual student support to assist students in overcoming barriers to learning and development.

For academic concerns, it is usually best to talk to your child’s classroom teacher who can make a referral for support or assessment. However, parents are also welcome to contact the Guidance Officer regarding concerns about their child by making an appointment through the school administration office.

If you need to access services in the community for support for you or your family, the following contacts may be of use:

  • Family and Child Connect – 13 32 64
  • Lifeline Counselling Service – Ph: 13 11 14
  • Beyond Blue (Depression and Anxiety) – Ph: 1300 224 636
  • Kids Help Line – Ph: 1800 55 1800
  • Parent Line – Ph: 1300 30 1300


I look forward to meeting you! 
