What is Student Services

 
 
At Loganlea State High School we pride ourselves on the comprehensive student support available to our students.  The Student Services team makes up the Student Services Hub within the school.  Our team aims to promote health, happiness and harmony within the school and are here to provide support and advice to students, parents, families, teachers and other school staff in relation to a variety of matters that may impact on these three goals.
