CCCVaT School Support Services is a strong advocate for Chaplaincy in schools, valuing the importance of the role of Chaplains in school communities to support students, staff and families. Chaplains bring hope and light to schools, enhancing the well-being of students and responding holistically to the needs of the school community.
The National School Chaplaincy Program, enables Chum Creek Primary School to employ a Chaplain for two days per week. While the official title is ‘Chaplain’, the Chaplain’s work in our school is welfare-based & focused, and strictly non-denominational. They do not conduct any religious instruction.
The aim of the Chaplain’s program is to provide welfare support for the students who attend our school, and their families. Our Chaplain’s work complements the work done by our Primary Welfare Officer (PWO), and while the Chaplain’s position is partly funded by the NSCP our PWO’s position are not. Student and family involvement with our Chaplain is entirely voluntary.
