School Chaplain

1/08/2013

What is a school chaplain?

A school chaplain provides proactive pastoral care for students, staff and parents, helping to create a positive and safe school environment. They also support the spiritual needs of students regardless of their faith or beliefs and chaplains help build a strong link between the school and the wider community. Our school chaplain is also a great role model for our students in assisting them to develop positive and supportive relationships.

 
Who is our school chaplain?
Amanda Homann is our school chaplain “Chappy”.
 
What does our Chappy at Benowa do?
Our Chappy at Benowa offers students a delicious free hot breakfast every week to give them energy and cater for those who skip that very important meal of the day. She also runs the Youth Community Council who seeks to get involved in community projects such as feeding the hungry, sponsoring children, fundraising and more. She runs camps, provides one on one pastoral care, runs community events and also works closely with the support staff.
 
Amanda is always looking for ways to help out in our school. Here is one of the recent fundraisers she did with some students to raise money for chaplaincy. The Ks for Kids 10km walk.
 
At the next P&C meeting we will be discussing Chaplaincy and its benefits. All are welcome to attend.
