The Chaplain at Alexandra SC is funded through the Federal National School Chaplain and Student Welfare Program. John Leary works with us for 2 days a week and supports students, staff and families in their wellbeing and education. Participation in any part of the services offered by the Chaplin are voluntary.
John participates in a range of programs to build relationships with the students and provide pastoral care. An example of this is our BERMS program with a group of students who were working to increase their confidence, leadership and teamwork skills. He also assists staff and students in a range of classes and, as a part of the Welfare team, is available to chat with students, staff and parents if they request some one-on-one support.
