Parent information and Services

Anglicare Victoria offer a wide variety of parent services (such as the referral service listed below) and parenting courses.  Details are advertised in our newsletter when courses are offered.

Murrindal Referral & Support Services

Anglicare Victoria Family Services Practitioner, Angela Priestner, is available for one-off confidential sessions, consults, counselling, referral and support service every Thursday from 10.00am-4.00pm at the Murrindal Family Centre (Community Room), 100 Murrindal Drive, Rowville. Angela can provide a service via phone contact, walk-ins or schedule an appointment on 0417 384 017. This is a free service to help address any issues from relationships, family violence, parenting advice and any other issues that are affecting them at that point in time.

 

 

Counselling

The school counsellor and school wellbeing officers can assist when families undergo a trauma or big change.  Contact us to make an appointment.

 

Interpreter service

Parents and carers who don’t speak English well and hearing impaired parents and carers who use sign language, can get assistance from the telephone interpreter service. An interpreter can be requested for school matters involving your child such as enrolment, subject choice, educational progress, attendance, welfare or behaviour. Interpreters can also be requested for parent-teacher interviews, school meetings, school council meetings, and parents and citizens meetings.

The telephone number to call is 131 450. Ask for an interpreter for the required language and the interpreter will call our school and stay on the line to assist you with your conversation. You will not be charged for this service. Parents and carers who need an interpreter to attend a school meeting should let us know.
