The Chaplaincy Service within our school community is held in very high regard, and we are grateful of the supportive, professional services and programs that are provided.
Yugumbir is fortunate to have a chaplain available Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Mrs Kerry Anderson works alongside other members of our support service team as well as supports networks outside of the school community.
The main role of a chaplain is to provide social, emotional and spiritual support to the students, families and staff within our school community. Pastoral care is provided in many ways, including being a friendly face, a listening ear, as well providing access to appropriate programs and resources.
Lunchtime activities will be available each week and are a great way to assist students to develop positive relationships and practice developing appropriate social skills. Other programs are provided on a needs basis and these programs address a wide range of issues, including opportunities to support students and families affected by family relationship breakdown, friendship issues, peer pressure, grief, loss, self-esteem issues, bullying and anxiety.
Parents will need to complete a permission form before their child/ children can access pastoral care and/or participate in chaplaincy programs.
If you feel the chaplain can be of assistance, please contact the office.
