Sr Denise Brosnan is the All Saints’ School pastoral worker. Sr Denise provides a much needed service to students, staff and parents. She provides that caring and listening touch. Sr Denise can also provide advice for all manner of school and family issues. We are lucky to have her services and I recommend Sr Denise as a contact for parents in times of trouble and times of joy.
Kristina Holland-Thompson is All Saints’ School Guidance Counsellor. In her role she attempts to be responsive to the diverse needs of the contemporary Catholic school which is an increasingly complex community of teachers and learners. This response occurs in partnership with members of the school community as an integral part of the educational endeavours of that community.
Kristina’s role has a focus on fostering the development, mental health and resilience of all students, including those considered at-risk and those with special needs. This focus is addressed by offering direct services such as counselling, assessment and the provision of developmental guidance activities and indirect services such as problem-solving consultation and co-ordination.
