A child is not immune to the emotional fatigue that occurs with the challenging times of life.
These challenging times may include:
A death in the family;
Difficulties in social interactions;
The loss of a pet;
Peer disagreements and bouts;
Coping with troublesome behaviour; or
Falling behind in school work.
Hobart City Mission’s School Chaplaincy Program is there to provide support to help the child’s emotional wellbeing. HCM’s chaplains provide emotional support to students through one-on-one meetings, group sessions or during school trips and excursions.
By being there when the child needs it most, HCM’s chaplains creates a friendly connection with the school community.
Chaplaincy programs currently run at
Oatlands District High School,
Rosetta Primary School,
Margate Primary School
