Scripture Union Queensland—Charters Towers Local Chaplaincy Committee
Chaplains provide social, emotional, practical and spiritual support in Australian schools. They work in prevention and support; helping students find a positive way to deal with issues ranging from relationship and social problems, family breakdown and loneliness to support through grief, natural disaster and personal tragedy.
They provide a listening ear and a caring presence for kids in crisis, and for those who just need someone to believe in them. They are also on-hand to provide support for staff and parents in school communities.
“Chappies are there to help kids deal with all that life throws at them,” said Peter James CEO of SU QLD, the largest employing authority of school chaplains in Australia.
SU QLD is officially endorsed by Education Queensland as an accredited employing authority for school chaplains. There are currently more than 600 SU QLD chaplains working in more than 800 schools across the state.
