How to nominate a student to attend Stewart House

Every year, approximately 1800 students from public schools across NSW and ACT attend a 12 day program at Stewart House. Students are usually between Year 2 and Year 8. Every 2 weeks approximately 90 students attend Stewart House.

Every school is linked into a local school network and given a 2 week period each year that they can nominate students to attend Stewart House.  School Principals nominate students who they believe will benefit from the 12 day program.  Usually, only 1 or 2 students from a school will be given the opportunity to attend.

The Stewart House Program is a busy activities and experience based program with a focus on building self-esteem, resilience, social skills and a personal sense of wellbeing.

The referral form is located on the DET Intranet site.

On occasion, school Principal’s may wish to refer a student outside of their usual network allocated time. If this occurs, the Principal must contact Stewart House to discuss the referral.

To assist students and their families prepare for a visit to Stewart House, you may want to show students and their families our “Let’s Get Happy” video, our 360 virtual tour (LINK)and the information available in the “Families” and “Students” sections of our website.

If you have any questions about nominating or referring students to Stewart House, please contact the Student Placements Officer on 02 9938 3100.
