Welfare issues at school are better managed through stronger connections with families. School home issues are effectively followed up and often issues which cause added hardship are resolved. Ultimately this improves connectedness and student/school relationship.”
His consistent approach to working with the whole person earns the trust of families and gives them confidence in approaching him regarding matters of spirituality. Students recognise that Daniel is someone who will listen without judgment and they often request time with him when they are feeling unsettled.”
The Chaplain is a highly valued and well respected member of our school community. He has the full support of the College Council and the College leadership executive. Further, he endears himself with the entire College community.
The Chaplain does a brilliant job with the students, staff and families that she works with showing a great deal of care for all members of our school community. There is a much greater need for support in our school community and the Chaplain is able to provide that support and also direct families to external organisations that can assist them.
The Chaplain is confidential, professional and has a very caring, kind and understanding manner with all members of the school community. There isn’t anything further I would ask the Chaplain to do; she is doing a terrific job.
The Chaplain has quickly become an integral member of our staff where she is always keen to get involved in the school community in any way possible. She is always professional displaying a high level of personal integrity.
The Chaplain is contributing in so many ways that it is difficult to think of any further ways she could serve and enhance the life of the school.
Overall, I am extremely happy with the program and the benefits is has brought to my school.
The staff members at our school see the Chaplain as a part of their team and consult her frequently regarding the well-being of their students. She has dealt with very sensitive information with confidentiality and integrity and is a highly trusted member of each team.
In support of CCCVaT as funding provider:
On behalf of the chaplaincy committee and the college community, I would like to thank CCCVaT for their generous and amazing support, not just for the Chaplain, but for the chaplaincy in schools program as a whole. Thank you for the expertise and vision you have shared with us to maintain the longevity and growth of the program. We remain eternally grateful that you came to us at such a difficult time, especially after the news that we had lost our funding for our Chaplain. We look forward to building on our relationship with all the team at CCCVaT.
