During Advent, we remember the words the angels spoke to Zechariah, to Mary and to the shepherds, ‘Do not be afraid.’ Along with these words, the angels gave a message of hope about the imminent arrival of the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ.

People still need to hear a message of hope.

From one of our chaplains,

Last year a Year 10 student came into the Peer Support training. He didn't speak much and was reluctant to make eye contact. By the end of the year he was trusting myself and the wellbeing team with his story. He chatted often, made eye contact and smiled more. He applied for leadership positions in Year 11 and has been nominated for the Kokoda Program (only one student per school), for which he had to sit in an interview.

During the interview he stated, "I am not going to let my disabilities hold me back because I can do anything." When asked who had been his greatest support he answered "The Chaplain". I feel so… privileged to be a part of his journey.
