Scripture Union (SU) QLD chaplains, or ‘chappies’, provide social, emotional and spiritual support to school communities. They are in the prevention and support business: helping students find a better way to deal with issues ranging from family breakdown and loneliness, to drug abuse, depression and anxiety.
They provide a listening ear and a caring presence for children and young people in crisis, and those who just need a friend. They also provide support for staff and parents in school communities.
- More than 67% of Queensland State Schools have a chappy
- SU QLD has placed chappies in 63% of all Queensland state primary schools and in 88% of all Queensland state high schools
- Right now, our chappies are serving more than 400,000 Queensland students
Our school Chaplain is Mrs Marisa Heidke or 'Chappy Ris'. You can find out more about how your child can access support from Chappy Ris by calling the office today on 4150 5333. You could also email Chappy on: firstname.lastname@example.org
