Around 40 children in our school have parents working for the Australian Defence Force.
We are very aware of the unique educational needs these students have, partly due to their mobile lifestyle; when they move in and out of school, and when a parent is away from home due to deployment and training.
In conjunction with St Monica’s Primary School, we access the Defence Transition Mentor Program, funded through the Department of Defence. Taryn Hopper is our first ‘point-of- contact’ for ADF families. She is available during most holiday breaks.
Apart from making the initial transition as seamless as possible, Taryn liaises with you for the duration of your time with our school.
