Chaplains work as part of the school support network which includes the school nurse, social worker and psychology services to promote student, teacher and family health and wellbeing.
Reece High School principal Grant Armistead describes chaplains as the school “triage service” and “good cops” of the school; the “expert listeners and encouragers” who are “independent and non-judgmental”.
Chaplains have a diverse role, from organising the school breakfast program, to providing a safe space for students to share their thoughts and feelings, to organising food relief and other practical care for families.
