Forrestdale Primary is fortunate to have a School Chaplain for two days every week funded through the National School Chaplaincy and Student Welfare Program. Her name is Tina Ma'a and she is here to support the whole school community. Tina has worked with young people in various volunteer and paid roles throughout her career.
Tina is passionate about the care and wellbeing of young people, and is dedicated to doing what she can to support and help those in our school community who need a helping hand. She is committed to helping our students through various social and emotional problems by providing them with skills, which enable them to have a great school experience. Tina’s focus is on improving outcomes for all students, through giving them a safe place to seek adult support, and by empowering them with protective skills and behaviours so that they may thrive throughout their lives.
Tina is at Forrestdale Primary on Tuesday and Thursday each week and is excited to be a part of our school community.
