The 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, the school or their family networks
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. These positive relationships help young people to face issues, and provide hope, connection, meaning and purpose. (adapted from Scripture Union brochure)
Coominya school has the privilege of a chaplain 2 days a week (Monday and Tuesday). Chappie Krystal is available to talk to children and parents alike. Approach her directly or organise an appointment through the office.
