Yuluma Primary School has a YouthCARE Chaplain who works 2 days a week at the school. Chaplaincy is funded at a state and Federal level, and YouthCARE are the providers of the Chaplaincy program. Yuluma Primary School has had a Chaplain since 2002.
The Chaplaincy program primarily offers pastoral care to the students, parents, staff and the wider school community to address social and emotional well being. The Chaplain contributes to the general day to day running of the school in a support role as required. There are a number of programs that have been run through the Chaplain at the school, including Breakfast Club, Lunch Club (year 6), parent learning and Playgroup. All of these are offered on a as needs basis.
Over recent years, 3 year old Playgroup has been run at Yuluma Primary School with great effectiveness. The role of Playgroup is to provide a space for your children to learn new skills through play with children of a similar age. Children develop a confidence in the school environment which is beneficial for when they enter Kindergarten. It also helps parents to meet with other parents, building new connections and supporting each other. The group is self-managing with each parent responsible for their child/children.
Playgroup currently runs fortnightly on a Monday. For more information contact Eden at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message at the front office.
