We have chaplains placed at Emerald Secondary College and four of the primary schools in the Eastern Hills region. We are fortunate to be able to offer a team model, where the chaplains in the schools do not work in isolation, but are able to work together with the chaplains in the other schools for training and support.
Chaplains can do what no one else in the school can as they address the big issues and big questions of life in a way no psychologist or counsellor can. Our chaplains are seen as the 'go to' people in emergencies and have really proved their worth over the years. The chaplaincy program is funded by the Federal Government through the National School Chaplaincy Program.
Echo Youth and Family Services are also part of the Inspire Chaplaincy Network.
