Defence support


​A Defence School Transition Aide (DSTA) is based at Annandale State School. The school's DSTA aims to facilitate the best possible outcomes for children of Australian Defence Force parents through flexible assistance and ensure a smooth transition between one educational setting to the next.

The school is fortunate to have Mrs Tanya Hurditch and Mrs Karen Mitchell as our DSTAs. Our DSTAs operate a number of key programs including:

  • Welcoming new students and families into our Annandale State School community.

  • Providing deployment support to students when their father/mother has been deployed.

  • Lunchtime activities

  • Morning teas for parents to meet new people and learn more about their new school and local community.

Please contact the school for more information.
