TANYA - BRINGING HOPE TO WESTBURY PRIMARY
My name is Tanya and I am the school chaplain at Westbury Primary School. Previous to this role, I worked with young people through the church and I wanted to further my work in this area so I became a school chaplain. Aside from chaplaincy, I am also involved in helping with SU Tas through their holiday club program.
My main role at Westbury is supporting students in classroom and just being available to support students as needed. I spend time in classrooms working with students one-on-one to help them get their tasks done. I also support the teachers, run craft programs at lunch and lead the choir.
The aim of SU Tas is to help young people and their families have hope for the future. Through the generosity of supporters, I am able to support students and assist them in learning how to deal with the everyday issues that they face. My work is encouraging students to reach their full potential and helping them to believe in themselves.
The work of chaplaincy will only continue with the support of the community and generous Tasmanians. Your gift will help support my work and school chaplaincy into the future!
