The chaplain is another significant adult in the school for young people to connect with. The chaplain provides a listening ear and a caring presence, and in doing so offers a message of hope. The chaplain has a ‘pastoral care’ relationship with the school community. Students and their families, each with their unique story, find additional support from the school chaplain.
The chaplain leads by positive example, and supports school life through clubs at recess time and is a member of the breakfast club team. The ‘on the ground’ connections provided by the chaplain help students meet life challenges.
