Mr Todd Buxton - Year 8 Advisor 2023
A little bit about me
I have been at Gorokan High School for 12 years. Six of these years were spent as a student, graduating Year 12 in 2012. The other six years have been as a Teacher in the PDHPE Faculty. I am a local community member and have grown up on the Central Coast. I am proud to be part of the GHS community. I am also involved in coaching/selecting of GHS sporting teams and I am a member of the GHS Welfare Team as the Year 8 Advisor.
Year 8 Advisor
My goal as the Year 8 Advisor is to work in the best interest of all students in Year 8. This is a very rewarding role within the education system and one that I am honoured to have. It has many components, all of which are significant and important. Some of these components include wellbeing and welfare needs, parent/caregiver contact, student conflict, medical information, liaising with GHS staff, convening Year 8 assemblies / information sessions, organising extra-curricular activities (e.g. camps), informal individualised conversations with students regarding any 'happenings' (positive and negative) and any other information regarding students in Year 8.
If there are any students in Year 8 that are having difficulties, I am happy to assist in any way I can. In saying this, if students are having trouble with classwork, assessments and other subject specific work, then contact should be made to their appropriate classroom teacher. The wellbeing of our students and their families are of a high priority to us at GHS and we are here to work together.
Year 8 Camp
GHS will be offering a camp for Year 8 students this year. Further communication will be provided once a venue has been confirmed. The date of the camp will be mid to late Term 4. Please keep a look out for more information to come.
How to contact me
I can be contacted via email at email@example.com or by phoning the school and I shall respond as soon as possible.
