The National School Chaplaincy and Student Welfare Program provides funding to schools to access the services of a school chaplain or student welfare worker.
This program aims to help school communities support the spiritual, social and emotional wellbeing of their students.
A range of services are provided by school chaplains and student welfare workers including:
- Support and guidance about ethics, values, relationships and spirituality.
- Provision of pastoral care.
- Engagement with the broader community.
At Henry Kendall High School we are fortunate enough to have Cheryl Andrews who runs a series of programs to support the emotional wellbeing of our students. These include:
- Shine Program
- Seasons for Growth
- Craft group
- Student Mentoring
