There are 22 schools across Ryan that will benefit from this Budget funding boost so that chaplains can continue their vital role supporting the health and wellbeing of young people.
This funding means school chaplains can continue to provide important pastoral care and run programs such as breakfast clubs and other volunteer activities within their school communities.
The Programme will have a greater focus on bullying, specifically cyberbullying, which will see school chaplains required to undertake training in this area to ensure they are fully equipped to deal with the challenges in the school community.
Ensuring that schools are supportive, inclusive and safe learning communities provides a strong foundation for students to reach their full potential in learning and in life and I know the important role the National School Chaplaincy Programme plays in promoting this.
Participating schools are eligible to receive up to $20,000 (in metropolitan or regional areas) or $24,000 (in remote/very remote areas) to employ a school chaplain.
