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 works 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 decision to establish a chaplaincy service was taken by the Principal of the School after consultation with the School Council and Parents & Citizens association.
The Chaplaincy service is a voluntary service and members of the school community do not have to participate in this service. If you do not wish your child to participate in any activity or service offered through the Chaplaincy service please contact the school office.
If you have a complaint regarding an incident or pattern of behaviour by the Chaplain, please address it in writing to the Principal All matters brought to the attention of the Complaints Officer will be handled in accordance with the complaints and grievances policy.
