The Student Support Services Team is integrated in the life of the school. The primary focus of the SSS team is to provide services for students who demonstrate need for additional support for learning, or who are experiencing difficulties that affect their physical, social or emotional well-being and impact on their functioning or engagement with school life.
Support is aimed towards helping students to reach their full potential whilst being included fully in the school community. The team also supports and follows the progress of students as they transition from one level of the school to the next.
The Student Support Services Coordinator, together with the counselors and Principals, supports all members of the Student Support Services Team, ensuring that student support needs are looked at holistically, via a collaborative, team approach. The Student Services Team work together to ensure:
WIS is committed to providing a learning environment that allows every learner to feel accepted, valued and supported.

English as a Second Language is the linguistic term used to describe a situation where English is the language of instruction and speakers of other languages have to learn English in order to study the academic programmes offered in that school.
The school employs a full-time Registered Nurse to provide first aid and emergency treatment for students who become ill or who are injured during the course of the school day.
