From the Chaplain
I wish to extend my greetings to both the new and existing parents and their families for this 2017 school year. My name is Rowan Thurman and I am the Chaplain at the Junior School Campus. At the start of a new school year there are many changes and new situations to adapt to.
During this settling in time, I would count it a privilege to be able to offer assistance and support to your children and families, should the need arise. As the year unfolds, there may be needs encountered at school or at home that I could listen to, encourage or refer on. I can also be an added link between the Home Room Teacher and your family. The practical, emotional, social and spiritual needs of your child and family are of significant importance to us. I love relating to the students through assemblies, camps, excursions, Bush Prep, devotions and special programs such as 'Rainbows' and Social Groups.
I look forward to meeting you at the upcoming Welcome Picnic, or out the front of the school in the afternoon. I can also be contacted by phone through the front office, or via a letter in your child's student organiser. We run a number of programs throughout the year to assist both students and parents - the details of which I will provide over the coming weeks.
