The Wellbeing Services Team

The wellbeing services team comprises of Chris Clements, Annecke Redelinghuys (Tuesday/Friday), Lisa Thompson (Wednesday/Thursday) and I.

In 2019 we also welcome Rev. Tracey Gracey. Tracey has been in ordained ministry for 13 years. During this time; she has worked in children’s and family ministry, youth ministry, parish ministry, school and hospital chaplaincy, undertaken a spiritual director’s course and held Diocesan leadership roles mainly in the area of church growth and fresh expressions of church.

Her main role at Pulteney will be to work with classes and to provide relevant and engaging Chapel services from ELC to Year 12. Chapel services will be an opportunity for our students to not only learn about the Christian faith and the life of Jesus but to apply the Christian values and call to serve in our current world today.

The wellbeing services team provides a key aspect of student welllbeing @ Pulteney and along with Rev Tracey Gracey, the Health centre, Student Wellbeing Committee and Student Wellbeing team, is exploring opportunities, structures and procedures to continue to develop support for our students.

We are here to help. As the Student Wellbeing Team of Pulteney, we are passionate about our students and their wellbeing and we offer a variety of services to support to them as well as their Parents.

Collaboratively, the team identifies themes of concern amongst students and tailor-make solutions to support them effectively. The team is highly professional and equipped to deal with a range of challenges.

We would like to encourage students and families to make use of the supportive service that the Student Wellbeing Team offers and to recognise that we highly value confidentiality and that we are committed to supporting our community.

Year 10 Wellbeing evening – Thursday 28th February

Last week saw the inaugural launch of a Year 10 Parent Wellbeing Evening titled Inside the Mind of a Teenager. This evening was specifically designed to provide parents of Year 10 students with information on the teenage brain and how to best assist young people in these formative senior years of schooling. Guest speakers included Annecke Redelinghuys (Pulteney Grammar School Counsellor), members from Elevate Education and Dr Tessa Opie (In Your Skin).

On behalf of Nick Brice and the wellbeing services team, I wanted to thank the parents who attended the evening. It was wonderful to listen to positive, research-based approaches to support young people and give families an opportunity to hear directly from partners in our wellbeing program.
