Meet our School Staff

Name – Joanne Johnston
Title – Wellbeing Coordinator

Our Wellbeing Office at the East Campus is tucked between room 33 and 34 and there, amongst walls of students’ artworks and comfy lounge chairs, you will find Jo Johnson – Wellbeing Coordinator.

There is every chance you will spot her actively listening to a young person in our school community, empathising with whatever it is that is hampering their ability to thrive. She may be focusing on strength based solutions or possibly introducing them to one of the eight wellbeing team members who will provide specialist support (including psychologists, social workers, youth workers, visiting teachers and mentors).

Jo has been at Rowville Secondary College for over 20 years now and shared that she “feels privileged to be able to support such incredible young people as they grow through a diverse range of challenges.”

A highlight of her time in Wellbeing has been “watching students grow through troubled times to a place where they are confident to use their new found voices. To see students take on leadership roles and use their developed emotional intelligence to help others is very rewarding.”
