The School Chaplaincy program has been running at Joondalup Primary for over 5 years. Our current School Chaplain, Jessica Kenny, started this Semester, relieving for Chaplain Stacey Green who is on maternity leave.
A Chaplain’s primary role is to care for the social and emotional well-being of students, staff and parents by being a listening ear. Jessica speaks with students individually, spends time in classrooms, runs group programs and works together with the student services team to ensure quality pastoral care is provided to the whole school community.
Jessica comes to us with a wealth of experience in pastoral care and is able to provide community links for families, often liaising with outside agencies to ensure the best care possible.
