Edney is fortunate to have a School Chaplain for two days every week funded through the National School Chaplaincy and Student Welfare Program. His name is Avram Iancu and he is here for the whole school community.
Mostly his focus is on our students, particularly to support students in maintaining friendship groups, assisting students dealing with anxious moments and any unexpected family events as well as events in the community that may require a helping hand. Pastoral care and support is given through the School Friendship Club, mentoring of students, coaching on matters to do with building resilience, helping to connect children/families to community activities, attending to student well being, offering a guiding hand when needed and working with community organisations to access available support in a variety of situations.
Avram attends our school both Monday and Tuesday each week and is always willing to see parents for discussion.
