    FSC - Family Services Coordinator - Ellen Taylor

    Hi, I am Ellen Taylor the new Family Services Coordinator.  I started on Monday 2nd February and am full-time in the position. Initially I am keen to meet all staff, students and parents connected to this vibrant and diverse school community.  I am situated in the Children's Centre in an office with Shaun Harris, the Community Development Coordinator.

    I look forward to working along side Children's Centre Staff and families, supporting individuals and families to develop and maintain safe, caring, connected and resilient relationships.

    Look forward to meeting everyone, learning more about how to integrate into the role the existing services and finding ways to support the building of strong and positive relationships.

    CDC - Community Development Coordinator - Shaun Harris

    My role as Community Development Coordinator in the Children's Centre is to work with the team to support families with young children and I hope to do so in some pretty creative and interesting ways.  I like working with creative arts, cooking, growing produce and I am good at keeping connected with local projects and services that are on-site and out there in the community.  I am a resource for you and will do my best to connect you with the right assistance, no matter how big or small the issue is.

    I am in the Children's Centre Monday through to Friday so please come in and say 'Hi'.
