Middle School Chaplains
Hi and welcome to 2017!
We are Middle School Chaplains, Naomi and Chappy, and we are looking forward to getting to know you all better this year.
We believe each child is a unique and special person created by God in His image. We feel that it is a privilege to partner with parents and families to walk with these children through this stage of their life. We understand the great responsibility of guiding students through this part of their journey and ensuring that we encourage growth spiritually, physically, intellectually, emotionally and socially.
Our hope is that the students would see us as safe people to connect with, that we provide a listening ear and a caring presence with a message of hope. We provide pastoral care that is strongly valued and promoted at our school. We like to work alongside the Heads of Campus and Homeroom Teachers to offer the best support possible, keeping in mind that confidentiality is a high priority.
Throughout the year, we also team up and run events like the 40-hour famine, prayer days, devotions and 'RU OK' day. Our aim to proactively seek opportunities to build life skills and emotional resilience in our students through mentoring relationships and programs.
A little bit about us....
Chappy is married to May, he is a father to four daughters, two of which attend Christian College and he has over 20 years' experience in pastoral care, ministry and chaplaincy. He enjoys having a laugh and joke with those in his company.
Naomi is married to Terry, she has two daughters, the eldest attending Christian College Middle School. Naomi has worked as a teacher for the past 10 years and is currently studying a Certificate of Theology. She values the relationships between staff and students and their families, and she is looking forward to working with the community at Christian College.
We hope to bring you relevant articles and messages throughout the Semester to support you in your parenting journey.
