My name is Tracey Bujora and I am the Defence School Mentor Officer appointed to support our serving members and their families within the school environment.
The aim of this role is to provide a link between the school and family whilst recognising the unique difficulties faced by mobile defence families.
A Defence School Mentor will work with groups and individuals to:
Welcome children of Defence force families and smoothly integrate them into our school community
Assist to build self-confidence and resilience
Implement programs to support the needs of students
Support students that have parents on deployment
Provide a link between family and community organisations relevant to needs
Farewelling students and assistance with transition to a new school
If you are listed in the Army Reserves and have a child enrolled at Isabella and feel they could benefit from this support please contact either myself or the main office for more details.
I look forward to getting to know our new Defence Force families. I am available Monday through to Friday and can be contacted via the school office number: 40408777 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
