Chaplaincy Service

 

Chaplaincy Services provide social, emotional and spiritual support to school communities.  SU QLD Chaplains provide positive adult role models for students. Chaplains are present in schools at the invitation of the Principal, in consultation with the local community, and with the support of the P&C Association.

Paul McGuire, affectionately known as “Chappy Paul” is our current Chaplain, working Wednesday, Thursday & Friday and has been supporting our students since 2013. As the Chaplain, Paul is actively involved in a range of school activities and aims to build rapport with students ensuring they have a trusted friend should challenging circumstances arise. Students may request to see the Chaplain in an individual basis for support in personal matters. Parental consent forms will be needed for these support sessions.
Parent’s may also engage with the Chaplaincy service for support and can contact Paul via the school.
