We welcome defence families to St Monica’s.
Defence Transition Aide Program
St. Monica’s is fortunate enough to have a Defence Transition Aide, Mandy Manwaring. The Defence School Transition Aide Program provides support to children of Australian Defence Force (ADF) members and their families, particularly during their transition into and out of a school on posting or during parental absences due to deployment, exercises or courses.
Part of the role includes assisting ADF parents and children to become familiar with the school and its facilities, co-ordinating appropriate welcoming and farewelling activities for ADF children involving the school community, and monitoring ADF children’s personal issues such as friendship, peer groups and classroom difficulties.
