Chaplaincy at Mildura Senior College
Mildura Senior College is fortunate to have a school chaplain as a part of
our wellbeing team. The chaplain at our school is funded through the Australian
Governments National School Chaplaincy and Student Welfare Program and
supported by the local Chaplaincy Committee.
Chaplaincy is a unique service that is of great value to our students, staff
and parents, offering care, building the social skills of students, and
encouraging responsible behaviour amongst our young people. Our chaplain works
as an integral part of our Wellbeing Team along with our Student Wellbeing
Coordinator and school Nurse. Together they offer individual support, they plan
and implement wellbeing programs across the curriculum and they participate in
a broad range of school coordinated activities such as school excursions,
camps, sporting events and assemblies. Student engagement in this Program is of
a voluntary nature.
Each year our school council seeks feedback from our school community in order to enable us to review and confirm support for the Program. We also maintain a risk management plan which is reviewed annually. School procedures are followed for parents and students to seek referral, manage complaints and to opt out of the Program.
