My name is Lisa Champlin and I have been teaching at Willmott Park Primary School for over 20 years.

I have worked closely with families to ensure students are supported academically, emotionally and socially.
As the Wellbeing Leader I work closely with students, staff and families to ensure students feel supported, connected and engaged at school. I support students to develop their social and emotional skills, assisting them in becoming happy and successful members of the Willmott Park Primary School community.

My name is Samantha Lee and I am the School Counsellor at Willmott Park Primary School.

Mrs Lia Guindani (She/Her)

Programs for Students with Disabilities Leader

All schools have the opportunity to be innovative to address the growing need for students to have disability inclusion and diversity needs met within our school. Our Care Team at WPPS is particularly unique and experienced, and we liaise closely with teaching staff, families, external Allied Health Professionals (AHP’s) and our DET Student Support Officers (SSSO’s) to identify students in need of reasonable support adjustments to access the learning curriculum at WPPS.

My role on our active Care Team at WPPS, as Program for Students with Disabilities (PSD) Coordinator, brings together 30+ years of primary school teaching experience in many schools and teams at grade levels from prep to 6, as well as in specialist roles. My role involves accessing funding through DET PSD program for our neediest students to assist our school teaching team and families to best support eligible disability needs students to grow in confidence towards achieving their emotional, social and academic potential.

My role also extends into Hume Region as a DET PSD Nominee to assist other schools with funding needs.
We acknowledege the Gunung-Willam-Balluk people as the Tradiational Owners of the land on which we meet and pay our respects to the Elders past and present.
