Social Worker in School

Tena Koutou Katoa

My name is Victoria Herrick and I am the Social Worker/ Whanau Support Worker at Mountview School.

I am available to help and support Mountview children and their whanau with any worries, issues or problems. Part of my role can be to assist in supporting adults in accessing community services or gaining information, advice and support for a worry or problem within the whanau, school or home environment.

As well as information and advice, I also provide one-on-one sessions for children that require greater support to deal with an issue. I also implement programmes for groups of children within the school community. These may be focused on friendships, making good choices or bullying.

This service is FREE and run through Family Works Northern, participation is voluntary and anyone can make a referral. If you would like to discuss anything with me, or even just for a catch up, I am available through the school office.
