Chaplaincy applications now open!
Chaplains provide social, emotional, and spiritual support to school communities. They are in the prevention and support business, helping students find a better way to deal with life’s issues. They provide a listening ear and a caring presence in the school, available for all students, staff, and families.
Scripture Union Queensland (SU QLD) and School Chaplaincy ACT (SC ACT) chaplains model the compassion and unconditional love demonstrated and taught by Jesus, as recorded in the Bible. A chaplain will, therefore, be a person whose beliefs and lifestyle reflect a biblical understanding of, and a commitment to the teachings, life and person of, Jesus Christ. While exercising their role from within this framework, SU QLD/SC ACT chaplains will be sensitive to, respectful of, and available to all, regardless of beliefs or religious affiliations.
Federal Funding renewed!
The Australian Government has announced the good news that they would continue its commitment to fund the National School Chaplaincy Programme (NSCP) of $247million over four years through to 2022. This is a great outcome for the chaplaincy program!
