The School Chaplaincy program has been running at Joondalup Primary for over 5 years. Our current School Chaplain, Stacey Green, has been working as Joondalup Primary School’s in-school chaplain since 2015.
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. To do this, Stacey often 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.
Stacey has been heavily involved in Joondalup’s pursuit to become a more mentally healthy school, and has worked alongside Act-Belong-Commit to help achieve this. Stacey often liaises with outside agencies and refers families to ensure the best care possible and support community links.
