At the Change over function we welcomed the Chaplains from Dunwich State School, Whites Hill State College and Carina State School.
SU Qld chaplains, or ‘chappies’, provide spiritual and emotional support to school communities. Helping students find a better way to deal with issues ranging from family breakdown and loneliness, to drug abuse, depression and anxiety. The ‘Chappies’ provide a listening ear and a caring presence for children and young people in crisis, and those who just need a friend. Support is also provided to staff and parents in school communities.
Steve Minnikin MP also attended our gathering as he does each year and it was wonderful to hear how he feels about our work and it makes us feel very proud of what we do, thank you for your support over the years Steve.
