About Chappy Week

Chappy Week is an annual event run by SU QLD to raise awareness of the value of school chaplains and to raise funds to support chappies.

Schools and communities get on board, hosting special events and taking to the streets for their ‘chappy’.

SU QLD is officially endorsed by the Department of Education (DOE) as an accredited employing authority for school chaplains.

Here are some events being run in schools across Queensland in and around Chappy Week each year:

  • Breakfast launches
  • Day of Honour
  • Chappy Challenges
  • Chappy breakfasts and fundraising dinners
  • Chappy Week at McDonald’s
  • Chappy-cinos at The Coffee Club
  • Get in touch with your local chaplain for more details!
