A school chaplain is a safe person for young people to connect with at school, providing a listening ear, caring presence and a message of hope. They care for students struggling with a range of issues within themselves or their family networks which may include: Family problems, confusing relationships, peer-pressure, friendship difficulties, low self-esteem, bullying, depression, suicide, drug and alcohol issues, and/or physical, sexual and emotional abuse.
Chaplains run positive, fun activities for young people, both in and out of school, and foster a supportive, caring school community. This includes support for at-risk students, support for staff and families from the wider school community, and spiritual support and direction for the school community. The partnership between the school and the chaplain, supported by local churches, businesses and community organisations, provides a network of local support and assistance. These positive relationships help young people to face issues and provide hope, connection, meaning and purpose.
