SCHOOL CHAPLAINCY PROGRAM  

Pastoral Care Workers provide students and the school community with support to enhance students’ emotional well being and promote optimal health and educational outcomes.

The program promotes links between a child’s school, family and community experiences.

Schools have a strong impact on a child’s overall wellbeing and the Pastoral Care Worker works alongside teaching and wellbeing staff to support children, families and the community so that school is a positive experience for all.

Issues a Pastoral Care Workers may provide support for are:

  • Grief and loss
  • Family Separation
  • Social issues within the school e.g. bullying, conflict, friendships
  • Resilience and coping with anxiety
  • Self Esteem
  • Developing social competence
  • Parenting

Centacare Ballarat is funded to provide School Chaplaincy in Ballarat, Warrnambool, Mildura and surrounding areas. Schools may also self-fund Pastoral Care Workers through this program.
