Chaplaincy

 

The National School Chaplaincy and Student Welfare Program

The Chaplains give witness to a personal faith in Jesus Christ, as it is practiced in the Catholic tradition at this College supporting the College’s Mission Statement. A key aspect of his initiative is the College’s Service Learning program “In Word and Deed” ensuring that strong and active links with parents and ex-students can be maintained through charitable and social justice initiatives.

The Chaplains minister to students by providing opportunities for prayer and worship and participation in social action programs as well as providing spiritual and pastoral support to students experiencing difficulty with school or personal issues.  In doing so, the chaplains support the existing pastoral care structures in the College.  This includes:

  • Developing faith opportunities and religious experience of students, staff and parents;
  • Fostering the catholic ethos by promoting peace and harmony in the face of social issues such as bullying and harassment;
  • Providing pastoral and spiritual support in the context of critical incidents such as accident, illness or bereavement;
  • Promoting an understanding of church;
  • Developing and promoting appropriate forms of collaboration among the school, family and church communities:
  • The “In Word and Deed” service learning programme.
  • Overseas immersion experiences of third world areas through our social justice programme

This program is funded by DEEWR under National School Chaplaincy and Student Welfare Program (NSCSWP)
