Student services and support programs

Chaplaincy

The Chaplain, Stephanie Kennedy, is at the school at Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday morning. She is available to help any student, parent, or staff member who needs support through a difficult time in his/her life. Appointments can be made through the office or with Stephanie directly.

The role of the chaplain is to:

Provide pastoral care to students, staff and parents through one-to-one sessions, support groups and referral to other agencies.

  • Be a positive role model within the school.
  • Be available to be involved in school programs.
  • Coordinate the Modelling affirmation trust encouragement and support (MATES) group.

Participation in the chaplaincy service is voluntary, if you would like your child to be involved regularly then you will need to fill out a permission form which is available at the office and from the chaplain.

Participation in any spiritual based programs also requires parental permission.

The chaplaincy service is funded by the National School Chaplaincy Programme, local churches and community groups, school parent support and is coordinated through Scripture Union. If you would like to make a tax deductible donation to assist our Chaplain, please collect a form from the school office or Stephanie.
