LifeHouse is passionate about providing opportunities for children and young people to hear and respond to the gospel message in our schools, we do this through school chaplaincy and SRE.
We have 3 school chaplains providing emotional and spiritual support to students. Bek McCowen at Narranga Public School, Penny Grayson at Toormina High School and Karli Hewitson at Kororo Public School. Along with individual support, they run various programs, including: social skills, anger management, lunchtime activities, and the Shine girls program. Their role can be flexible to meet the immediate need. They are the ‘hands and the feet’ in our school communities.
“He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.
And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly, love mercy and walk humbly with your God.”
