School Chaplaincy

Chaplains: Bringing Hope to a Young Generation​


Chappies are in the prevention and support business: helping students find a better way to deal with issues ranging from family breakdown and loneliness, to drug abuse, depression and anxiety.

They provide a listening ear and a caring presence for kids in crisis, and those who just need a friend. They also provide support for staff and parents in school communities.


What does our Chappy do?

  • Build positive relationships with students
  • Foster a supportive, caring school community
  • Work closely with other support staff and services to nurture and care for students
  • Support at-risk students through behaviour management programs
  • Support staff and families from the wider school community
  • Provide spiritual support and direction to the school community
  • Run activities, school breakfasts and other programs for students
