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.

Religious Instruction

Religious instuction classes are conducted for Years 2 to 7 classes (depending on availability of instructors) in the main in the afternoon in half hourly class sessions. The classes are delivered through the Christian Cooperative Program with visiting instructors from the Catholic, Uniting, Baptist and Anglican churches. All recognised faith groups are able to apply to conduct classes in the school.

Students are allocated to RI based on information provided by parents on the completed Application for Student Enrolment unless other written instructions have been provided to the school. Only students who have identified as one of the above faith groups will participate in religious instruction. If you are not a part of the above faiths, but would like your child to participate in this program, you can advise the school in writing. Students who are not participating in RI will be provided with Other Instruction in a separate supervised location. Other Instruction will relate to part of a subject area already covered in class and may include, but is not restricted to, wider reading, personal research and revision tasks. You will be notified of any changes to RI or Other Instruction.
You may wish to access the Department’s RI policy statement available at http://education.qld.gov.au/schools/school-operations/ri-policy-statement.html for further information.
