How the service links into other school support services and networks
Teachers can refer students directly to the Chaplaincy service when they see fit. Parents also are able to request that their child be able to talk with the chaplain. The Chaplain will offer referrals to, for example, Counsellors and outside agencies, when and if the need arises.
How to access activities such as arranging for one-on-one sessions
Students are able to contact Minah and negotiate a suitable time to meet. Parents are also welcome to contact the Minah by phone and request that she meet with their child.
How to opt-out of services
Being an Adventist School, parents have sent their children to this school knowing of the religious content which is taught. Therefore, any programs run by the school Chaplain that involve the whole school will be compulsory. If a parent does not wish for his/her child to be involved in any one-on-one activity with the Chaplain, a letter requesting exemption from this must be written and forwarded to the Principal.
If parents and carers have any complaints, they are welcome to discuss the matter with the school Principal, who will provide the Complaint Forms if required.
