Aim & Overview of the Chaplaincy Service

To provide effective support for the spiritual, social, and emotional wellbeing of students, staff and the wider school community, regardless of faith or beliefs.  The chaplaincy service:

·        Complements the care offered by other helping disciplines. 

·        Assists school counselors and wellbeing staff in the delivery of student welfare services. 

·        Provides students, their families and staff with support when facing personal and emotional challenges and appropriate referrals in difficult times. 

·        Supports students to explore their spirituality and provides guidance about spirituality, values and ethical matters. 

The School Chaplain will support and work with the School Principal and the school's wellbeing staff to provide an effective chaplaincy service designed to meet the needs of the School community.  The teaching of Scripture/ethics classes/provision of other welfare services are not funded through the National Schools Chaplaincy and Student Welfare Program. 

The decision to establish a chaplaincy service was taken by the Principal of the School after  consultation with the school community via P&C meetings, and in consultation with the wellfare team and staff members.
