SU QLD chappies
SU QLD chaplains, or ‘chappies’, provide spiritual and emotional support to school communities. They are in the prevention and support business: helping students find a better way to deal with issues ranging from family breakdown and loneliness, to drug abuse, depression and anxiety.
They provide a listening ear and a caring presence for children and young people in crisis, and those who just need a friend. They also provide support for staff and parents in school communities.
- More than 67% of Queensland State Schools have a chappy.
- That leaves around 400 state schools without a chappy!
- SU QLD has placed chappies in 63% of all Queensland state primary schools and in 88% of all Queensland state high schools.
- Right now, our chappies are serving more than 400,000 Queensland students.
