My name is Jennifer Jones and I currently have two children attending Amesbury School; one in her last year and one in her first year. I am a practicing clinical psychologist, registered with the NZ Psychologists’ Board and NZ College of Clinical Psychologists. I have provided services in numerous mental health agencies over the last eight years. I currently hold a senior clinical role at Explore Specialist Advice providing interventions for challenging behaviours, clinical supervision, quality assurance and professional development. In conjunction with this work, I also operate my own private practice.
As a both a parent and a Board of Trustees member, it’s important to me that children meet their education potential. Developing positive and successful experiences with their education can provide a stable platform supporting the students’ next phase of learning. I have interest in understanding modern learning initiatives and how best it serves the children at Amesbury in meeting their potential. As a parent, it is also important that communication with the School and parent community is supported. I hope to add value to those areas and many others during my time as a Board member.Email: [email protected]
