Woodlands Primary School has a visiting school Psychologist. The role of the School Psychologist is to assist in the improvement of learning outcomes for students by providing specialist consultation in the areas of counselling, education psychology and policy development. The School Psychologist is available one day per week. Enquiries regarding as to access to this service can be made by contacting your child’s classroom teacher.
A School Chaplain currently visits Woodlands Primary School one day a week on Thursdays.
School chaplains make a valuable contribution to the social and emotional wellbeing of school communities across Western Australia. They do not promote a specific set of religious beliefs, instead they provide support and guidance about ethics, values, relationships and spiritual issues, and help students engage with the broader community. Chaplains respect, accept and are sensitive to other people’s views, values and beliefs and they are part of our school’s pastoral care team. The chaplain is another adult that students can approach to discuss issues or just to have a chat.
YouthCARE Chaplaincy in State Schools provides and integral role in meeting the needs of children. The Chaplain works to build relationships with students, families and staff to be available to:
Offer pastoral care
Act as a mentor
Provide a link between the school and the local community
Be a positive role model within the school.
Mrs Domenica Casci, Dom, as she likes to be called is part of the YouthCARE program and has extensive experience being a School Chaplain having worked both in primary and high schools since 2005.
On occasions, staff may feel that it would be helpful to refer children to the Chaplain. Parental permission is always required before proceeding with a referral.
If a parent has a concern about their child and would like to meet Dom, feel free to call or email the school to schedule an appointment.
The students at Woodlands Primary School are expected to follow the four values of Belonging, Possibilities, Respect and Humanities. We have mascots called “The Woodlandians” that embrace these four values and encourage the students to do the same. More information on our values can be found on our website in the ‘Positive Behaviour Support Program’ section.
