School chaplaincy


​School chaplaincy provides emotional and spiritual support to school communities. We are in the prevention and support business: helping students find better ways to deal with issues ranging from family breakdown and bullying, to depression and anxiety. We help provide a listening ear and a caring presence for kids in crisis, and those who just need a friend. We also provide support for staff and parents in school communities.

Our school chaplaincy service runs a breakfast club program Monday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings before school. This program's purpose is to not only feed students the most important meal of the day but also open up a space for students to feel welcomed and supported.

My role also consists of one on one appointments, group activities, lunchtime activities and participation in general school life. You can often find me at lunchtime challenging students in a game of handball!
