School Chaplain

Canning Vale Primary School employs a School Chaplain. As a member of staff (who is not a teacher), our wonderful Chaplain provides a non-denominational service to our multicultural community. Mrs Lowther has one goal – great collaboration creates unity. Her success is visible across the school where she provides an empathetic listening ear for students, staff and parents/caregivers. She has a high standard of personal integrity and has therefore developed and maintained relationships that have been built on trust.

Mrs Lowther provides support across a wide range of issues including anxiety, anger, feeling overworked, self-esteem and identity, conflict resolution, assertive behaviours, protective behaviours, grief and loss, parenting and communication.

Mrs Lowther works in a variety of ways depending on individual need. This includes one on one or small group support, in the classroom working shoulder to shoulder with the teacher or out in the playground supporting students. Time in the classrooms helps build a therapeutic rapport with groups of children particularly the younger ones. As well, the Chaplain promotes the school’s values education program at assemblies and in the newsletter, and positive social skills development through games, plays, puppets and arts in the Chaplain’s room during various breaks.
