Student Wellbeing is one of our priorities at Montpellier Primary School, and our school curriculum incorporates positive education and Respectful Relationships and a range of programs, such as Body Bright body image education, to ensure that our students feel safe and connected to school and the wider community.
We also have the role of our Student Wellbeing Coordinator to provide support to students who may have personal or social issues impacting on their general wellbeing.
Sam is a registered teacher and provisional counsellor who provides a warm, caring and authentic connection with each student that she supports through short-term counselling and can assist caregivers with referrals for additional support for diagnosis or long-term psychological intervention. She also supports staff in addressing the needs of these students in the school setting and facilitates a wellbeing program at lunchtimes.
Sam works Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays and referral to our wellbeing coordinator is via the classroom teacher.
