Heathcote Primary School has a Wellbeing Worker, Megan Lynch. Megan works with us one day a week and is an important part of our school community. Our Wellbeing Worker is funded through the Australian Governments National School Chaplaincy Program.
Our School Wellbeing worker provides support to our students, staff and parents. She provides care, supports teachers in building the social skills of students, and encourages responsible behaviour amongst our students. She also runs a range of activities to promote parent/carer engagement in our school. Our Wellbeing Worker plays an integral part in our staff team. Megan can offer individual support and help staff members to implement wellbeing programs across the school. Any member of our school community is welcome to work with Megan. If you would like your child to access our Wellbeing Worker, please contact the office for a consent form. Megan will have a discussion with you if she feels the service is no longer useful for your child, or you may opt out at any time. In 2023 Megan will be working two days a week. Please contact the office if you would like to make an appointment with Megan.
