The Defence Transition Mentor Program (Prep – Year 12) assists our Defence students and families. The support we offer enables minimal disruption to student’s education and assisting them to settle into their new community smoothly.
It is well recognized that the mobile lifestyle associated with employment in the Australian Defence Force can present changes and challenges for the serving members' families. This is particularly so for students who move schools - often interstate. This does not have to be a negative experience and with the assistance of Defence Transition Mentors these changes can be a lot smoother.
Defence Transition Mentors work together with other College staff including Administration Staff, Teachers, Teacher Aides and the Guidance Counsellors. They respond to student concerns on an individual basis and find solutions for each student as required, being mindful of their age and situation.
