Our school employs a Social Worker to support children and their families in times of need.
Stacey Frost works at our school three days a week to fulfil this need. While Stacey’s role is
primarily working with the class teachers, some time is allocated to individual student needs.
Students are referred by the classroom teacher - so if you have concerns about your child the
classroom teacher should always be where you have your first contact and discussion.
Kristy Dupille is employed 3 days a week working with families, small groups and individual students.
Family concerns can be directed straight to Kristy and any student concerns
are referred through the classroom teacher.
SEASONS FOR GROWTH
is a loss and grief peer support program. This program is aimed at assisting young people to understand
the grief that is experienced because of the loss of a parent or significant other through death, separation,
divorce or other circumstances. Seasons offers a range of activities to assist children to gain skills required
to work with their loss and grief; understand it is normal to experience a range of emotions; provide a
supportive network of caring peers and build relationships with families, peers and teachers.
If you are interested in your child participating in this program, please see Stacey Frost our school Social Worker.
