Catholic schools are passionate about supporting our Defence force families and proudly participate in the Defence School Mentor (DSM) Program.
Based in our schools located close to Gallipoli Barracks, Enoggera, and RAAF Base Amberley, Ipswich, DSM aides (primary school) and mentors (secondary school) understand the issues Defence families face when transitioning to a new school.
Aides and mentors work with principals and staff to build school capability to support Defence families through direct and flexible on-site assistance to students, parents, teachers and other support services.
