A School Chaplain is a safe person for young people to connect with at school, providing a confidential listening ear, caring presence and message of hope.  They care for students struggling with a wide range of issues, including: family problems, confusing relationships, friendship issues, peer pressure, self-esteem issues, bullying, stress and anxiety.  School Chaplains foster a supportive, caring school community which includes support for all students and their parents, 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.  Chaplaincy Services operate in accordance with the Education Queensland Chaplaincy Policy.
