Subject: School chaplaincy abandoned by ACT Government schools

Dear Friend,

Earlier this week School Chaplaincy ACT received the deeply disappointing news from the ACT Government that it would abandon the school chaplaincy program at the end of 2019. In its place, it will introduce a secular support option.

As you can imagine, this news will be devastating for school communities and the children and parents whose lives have been powerfully impacted by the care, compassion and spiritual support of their school chaplain.

At this time, we need you to join your voice to ours and the tens of thousands of Australians who value the social, emotional and spiritual wellbeing of our next generation.

Please add your name to our Statement of Support and take a stand for our children.


Thank you for your vital support.

The National School Chaplaincy Association
