Student support

  • A program of work is under development to upgrade the reception area on the ground floor at KLD. The reception counter will be replaced with a new student study / seating zone.
  • While this work is underway, access to the area will be restricted, although the screens are unlocked and staff can walk through the area if they need to access the small meeting rooms at the back of the reception area.
  • KLD is relatively quiet at the moment and there are many rooms available to use if you are looking for a space to take students for a private conversation.
  • Alternatively, Susie Reay, MGSE’s Student Wellbeing Officer, has a small room behind her desk where you can bring students.
  • Please call Susie on 8344 8437 if you need assistance.
