Serene Chisholm

artwork by Zac CMy name is Serene Chisholm and it’s been a joy to be apart of the of WPS community since 2018. I have enjoyed getting to know the students, parents and staff at Wantirna Primary and love the culture of friendship, kindness and care amongst the staff and students at the school.

Prior to becoming a Chaplain at Wantirna Primary, I spent 14 years as a singing teacher and moved into the area of counselling after encountering numerous students who struggled with issues related to mental health. After completing a Graduate Certificate in Education (counselling), I am now completing my Masters in Positive Psychology and am working at the school part time doing classroom activities and seeing students individually. I love being able to support the social, emotional and spiritual wellbeing of the students by teaching practical strategies that will enable them to deal with life’s challenges in a healthy way.


I also love spending my free time with my family (particularly my two cheeky pre-schoolers), travelling to new places and reading.
