Defence Families at Essington

Defence families are supported within the Essington community.

At Essington, we understand the unique challenges faced by our defence community, and we offer additional support through our enrolments team and Defence School Mentor program.

The on-campus role of the Defence School Mentor (DSM) is to work with teachers, staff, students, parents, and support services to ensure direct assistance for families is available when you need it - at any stage of your Essington journey.

Defence families don't just need to find new schooling options for their children, but can also face difficulties in finding employment for the non-defence member.

Essington is a proud Bronze Pledge Partner of Soldier On’s Pathways Program. The Pathways Program helps veterans and their families to secure their future careers.
