Chaplaincy

National Schools Chaplaincy and Student Welfare Program provides funding to schools to access the services of a school chaplain or student welfare worker.

Schools funded under the program can choose the services of a school chaplain to provide pastoral care services or select the services of a non-faith based or secular, student welfare worker. 

Lesley Burdon has been employed as a Chaplain and this role has been a part of the Wyong High School Learning Community since 2010.

This program aims to help school communities support the spiritual, social and emotional wellbeing of their students by giving the student a holistic approach to everyday life.

A range of services are provided by school chaplains and student welfare workers include:

  • support and guidance about ethics, values, relationships and spirituality
  • provision of pastoral care
  • engagement with the broader community.

The program is an integral part of Wyong High School and continues to focus on seeing students reach their goals and maximise their potential.
