Student Family Centre (SFC)

Here at Penrice we recognise that, for some children, school is not always an easy experience. Children occasionally face social and emotional challenges which can impact on their learning.

The SFC works closely with school staff, external agencies, families, parents, carers and students to provide a friendly and warm environment, and a caring ear when needed.

The SFC is available from 7.30am – 4pm, Monday to Friday. The Team can be contacted for an informal chat to discuss any worries you may have about a student, or for information regarding family support.
