School Chaplain

School Chaplain

Chaplains support school communities through pastoral care of students, teachers, families and the wider local community and are a part of the school wellbeing team.  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.

 
Stewart MacCartney is our chaplain at Fairhills High School.  Stewart has qualifications in teaching and counselling and for many years has been involved as a leader in youth groups and running camps.
 
Stewart is located in the Wellbeing Centre.  You can make an appointment to see the chaplain during class time, at lunchtime or before or after school.
