Our Chaplains are ready to serve your school.

School Chaplaincy

Chaplains provide invaluable wellbeing support to students, staff and parents. Their training, skills and experience enable them to care for the school community's social, emotional, physical and spiritual wellbeing needs.

School Chaplains provide holistic care for your school community. They help you build school communities that are inspired, supported and whole.
Engage a Korus Connect Chaplain and experience the difference a Chaplain can make in your school.

Experience the Korus Connect Difference

We support the school as well as the Chaplain. This means a stress-free service for the school.

Journey School Chaplains journey with the school community through meaningful relationships, specialising in providing advice of a spiritual nature when sought, and in nurturing the spiritual wellbeing of every child, regardless of the child’s background or beliefs. Nurturing spiritual wellbeing includes the support and exploration of such concepts as identity, connection with others, meaning, purpose and belonging. Chaplains are there to support the school community over the long haul. See these national and Victorian snapshots to show how they do this.

Experience Korus Connect has 60+ years supporting school communities through chaplaincy. We help you build school communities that are inspired, supported and whole. Download our brochure to read more.

Support Just as school Chaplains care for others, we're just as concerned for our caregivers. We offer extensive training, networking and care for our Chaplains, as well as comprehensive school support to deliver a smooth and stress-free service.

Holistic Care Includes Spiritual Care

Recent research by McCrindle (2019) indicated that 97% of parents believe schools should have a holistic focus and play some role in the management of student wellbeing. A holistic focus means attending to the four dimensions of wellbeing: mental, emotional, social and spiritual. Chaplains help you achieve this holistic wellbeing focus. Chaplains, as religious practitioners, are best placed to attend to the spiritual care of school communities. Spiritual wellbeing supports meaning, purpose, identity, belonging and hope. It also supports resilience. See the DET review of resilience literature here.

Independent research commissioned by government validates the significant role that chaplains play in a school community.

Your school community can also benefit from a Chaplain; a religious worker who complements your wellbeing team.

We believe in wraparound, holistic pastoral care - which is why School Chaplains work collaboratively with other wellbeing and allied health professionals, such as psychologists, social workers, counsellors and nurses. Together, the impact on wellbeing is magnified.
