Our Team

The Pavilion School is led by campus principal and school founder, Josie Howie.  The Preston Coordinator is Michael Scicluna and the Mill Park coordinator is Jo Bartlett.  At The Pavilion School we understand that adolescence is a time of great change and rapid development, especially for students who have experienced trauma and changed schools multiple times.  For this reason every student at the Pavilion is allocated one teacher and one youth worker who work with the student towards academic and personal progression. 

Teaching team 

At the Pavilion we employ primary and secondary trained teachers from a range of teaching backgrounds and with diverse experience.  Each teacher is supported by an instructional coach and the teacher team work collegiately to plan integrated curriculum, lessons and evaluate their practice.  Every teacher teaches across all subject areas of the VCAL certificate and students can stay with their allocated teacher for a number of years and develop trusting relationships.  Every class at the Pavilion School is supported by a teacher assistant.  Teacher assistants work with individual students and small groups to help students engage with learning tasks. 

Wellbeing team

The Pavilion student wellbeing team is made up of a range of professionals who work together to improve the social and emotional health of our students.   Youth workers and social workers are allocated to each student and work in and out of the class to assist students to engage in learning.  A psychologist is available to do student assessments, counselling and staff professional development.  All staff are supported by a senior wellbeing worker who provides supervision to staff.
