Our School - School Chaplain

Our Chaplain, Talitha Martin, provides our students, parents and staff with one-on-one support where required and also offers a number of valuable programs to both students and staff. The Chaplain works with students, parents and teachers to assist in meeting the needs that arise in their daily lives. Life is not always easy, but knowing there is someone available to talk to, to listen, to encourage and to walk with you can be very comforting.

Access to chaplaincy support is through self, parent, or teacher referral. The Chaplain is available as a support to both students and parents and is at the school on Wednesdays and Fridays.


If you would like to arrange a meeting with our Chaplain please contact the school or email Talitha directly.
