Student Welfare Program

In 2012 Moree Christian School successfully applied for the Government’s Chaplaincy Grant. This has enabled us to employ a Chaplain/Student Welfare Worker to come alongside the students and help them with various social, spiritual and emotional needs.

Our school chaplaincy program is funded by the Federal Government. We are grateful for the blessing such funding provides for the students of Moree Christian School. However, in accepting this funding we must fulfil a number of requirements set by the Australian Government’s National School Chaplaincy and Student Welfare Program.

One requirement is that the chaplaincy service must remain a voluntary program. If you would like to view full details of this program, they are available at the school office. Should you wish to discuss the Chaplaincy program, you are welcome to make an appointment with our Principal and / or Chaplain. If you do not want your child to participate in the Chaplaincy Program, please contact the school.

Another requirement of the funding is that the school maintains a Risk Management Plan and a complaints handling process that includes a complaints register. Should a complaint be received in regard to the Moree Christian School Chaplaincy Program it will be handled in accordance with the school’s Grievance Policy and documented on the Chaplaincy Complaints Register. Detailed information with regard to this can be obtained via the office.

The Chaplaincy program is reviewed annually by the School Board following the feedback received within the Annual School Survey. We value any input members of the school community can provide and look forwards to receiving all your completed surveys.

The Chaplain/Student Welfare Officers are available on Mondays and Wednesdays for students to speak to. There are request forms available from classrooms and the office. These can be filled out and placed in an envelope which is to be put in the Chaplain/Student Welfare Officer tray located in the office. A plain envelope with the students name written on it will then be given to the student confidentially with a suitable meeting time.
