Travancore School

Promoting and supporting mental health in education

We are a Department of Education and Training school, but we are not like other schools. We don’t enrol students in our school - our teachers work with students who are enrolled in other schools or education settings. 

Depending on the student’s age and circumstances, we have a range of programs that promote and support positive mental health and engagement in education. Our teachers work in partnership with families, education staff and other professionals to support students to work towards their education goals.
