Chaplaincy

We highly value the provision of a Chaplaincy service to the school community three days a week. Ms Meagan Levey, our School Chaplain, works with students and families on a needs basis. The work that our Chaplain undertakes with students and families is of a non-religious basis, unless otherwise requested by the family involved. The Chaplain supports students and families with changes and challenges they may be experiencing in their lives such as:

- the loss of a loved one

- family separation

- dealing with cancer

- friendships, self-esteem

- anxiety

- anger


All dealings with the Chaplain remain highly confidential.

 

The School Chaplain provides opportunities for a range of group based supports according to community need. The types of programs that are undertaken include:

- Seasons for Growth (developing resilience to cope with change, loss and grief in our lives)

- Friendship Groups

- Targeted student groups responding to student/family needs

- Outsourced programs available through the community


Montrose PS is proud to acknowledge that the chaplaincy program is funded through the National Schools Chaplaincy and Student Welfare Program.
