PASTORAL CARE AT REYNELLA PRIMARY SCHOOL
Julie Mullins, our Pastoral Care Worker is positive role model who delivers compassionate pastoral and practical support throughout the breadth and length of school community life.
Together with the support and resources of the local combined Christian community, and in a complementary partnership with other wellbeing staff at Reynella Primary School, and, by developing connections with community services and agencies, Julie fill the gaps where flexible and consistent care is important. She helps:
- STUDENTS by listening, taking an interest in them, being involved with their daily lives, facilitating activities and seminars and being a positive role model
- STAFF by being a supporting resource, providing a listening ear, encouragement, friendship and supporting their personal wellbeing
- FAMILIES by being a person of contact, listening, caring, providing support in times of crisis as well as being a referral to support services
- COMMUNITY by being a link between churches, the wider community, and the school community
The role of the Pastoral Care Worker is an inclusive role and supports all parts of the school community in many various ways.
Julie is employed through SMG, who works closely with the SA Department for Education as a Service Provider for the National Schools Chaplaincy Program.
