Chaplaincy

Chaplaincy

 

Chaplains support school communities through pastoral care of students, teachers, families and the wider local community.  School chaplaincy has been recognised as one of the most significant youth-focused ministries for young people that is taking place in Australian schools.

Chaplains fulfil a unique role in school communities:

  • They are active in promoting student wellbeing, particularly through the provision of pastoral care.
  • They encourage reflection about the spiritual dimensions of life.
  • They have an educative role in the areas of beliefs, values, morals, ethics and religion.
  • They work to facilitate the connection of students into the school network and wider community.
