Our role as school chaplains is to support the emotional wellbeing of students and the broader school community.
Chaplains extend the care structures in schools to improve the wellbeing of young people through holistic pastoral care. By using the targeted programmes or one-on-one mentoring, chaplains seek to support young people through developing relationships and providing local community connections.
“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.”
