It also means being patient, trying to understand and not judging. You can care about and support people even if you don't know them." (Bounce Back Handbook p. 1) This is one of the ways in which we can serve one another. So what does it mean when I say my role in the school is to support students and families? Some of the ways I do this is by participating in general school activities and coming alongside students as I visit classes, helping them in practical ways with their activities, being a friendly listening ear when a child indicates they need someone to talk to or when requested by teachers or parents, on occasions helping friends to think of God honouring ways to resolve their conflicts, sometimes it has been being there for a parent as they talk through their concerns for their child. Some of the areas that may be included are in a student's exploration of their own spirituality, values and ethical matters and facilitating access to other agencies in the community such as churches. Sometimes the need is for guidance on issues concerning human relationships, support in cases of bereavement, family breakdown or other crisis or loss situations. If there is a way which I may serve your family please contact me either by email (dianne.jackson@ntschools.net), through your class teacher, the school office or in person on Wednesday and Thursday. May you walk in peace, know joy and always have hope.
