Chaplaincy

 
Our School Chaplain is available to all students for support of a personal and spiritual nature.
 

Chaplaincy services provide spiritual, ethical, and personal support to school communities. Scripture Union Queensland Chaplains provide positive adult role models for students. Chaplains also provide pastoral care for student, staff and families within the school community. Chaplains are present in schools at the invitation of the Principal, in consultation with the local community and with the support of the Parents and Citizens Association.

They coordinate with the Student Support Team to create programs that support the social and emotional wellbeing of students and promote resilience.

The Chaplains office is located at the G block end of upper D block. Students are free to visit during the break or to make an appointment via email at cthom768@eq.edu.au 

What is the role of the Chaplain?  

 

A school chaplain is a safe person for young people to connect with at school and provides a listening ear, caring presence, and a message of hope. Chaplains run positive, fun activities for students and assist in fostering supportive, caring school communities.

Working with other members of the school’s support team, the Chaplain cares for students struggling with issues such as difficult relationships with other children or family members, poor self-esteem, family breakdown, depression, and grief at the passing of a loved one.

The partnership between the school and the chaplaincy service, supported by local churches, businesses and community organisations, provide a network of local support and assistance. These positive relationships help young people to face difficult issues and provide hope, connection, meaning and purpose.

The chaplaincy service is available to everyone in the school community regardless of religious beliefs.
