Chaplaincy Program (School Counselling Service)

 Montpellier is privileged to have the services of a School Chaplain, Mr Jason Brown. Jason is a qualified child and adolescents  counsellor, as well as a former primary teacher. The chaplain’s role includes providing pastoral care to all  people in the school  community. This is done through developing a relationship of trust, confidence and  competency and may involve counselling and  referral services. Throughout your child’s time at Montpellier,  your child may experience anxiety, depression, emotional instability,  family changes, faith/spirituality  questions, grief and loss, self esteem, social skills and school/study concerns. These issues may be   discussed confidentially with Jason, and sometimes within a small group.

 Families seeking the assistance of the Chaplain can make contact with their child’s classroom teacher, Mrs  Browne, the school office  or Jason directly to obtain the necessary permission/referral forms. Pastoral care  for parents is also available with Jason via  appointment with the office, or speaking directly with him. We  would like to encourage new parents to make themselves known to Jason. He works here three days a  fortnight.

If you have a family emergency, please feel free to contact him, even if it is outside school hours. Jason Brown 0403 070 246
