In 2007 the Australian government established the National Schools Chaplaincy Program, a three year program that provided funds to establish a chaplain in schools that successfully applied for the funding. Due to it’s success, the program was extended to the end of 2011 and in 2012 the program was extended and expanded to include more schools.
‘It is a voluntary program that assists school communities to support the spiritual, social, and emotional wellbeing of their students. This can include support and guidance about ethics, values, relationships and spirituality; the provision of pastoral care; and enhancing engagement with the broader community.’ - NSCSWP website
