Our Lady of Lourdes School has a School Chaplain who is engaged under the Commonwealth Government's National School Chaplaincy Programme.
The School Chaplain operates as a member of a team to assist our school community to look after the personal needs of students through the provision of general spiritual and personal advice. This can include support and guidance about ethics, values, relationships and spiritual issues; the provision of student welfare; and enhancing engagement with the broader community. The School Chaplain contributes to the pastoral care of students and related wellbeing services offered by the school.
Sr Linh Dinh FdCC is a Canossian Sister and is a safe person for young people to connect with at school and provides a listening ear, caring presence, and a message of hope. Sr Linh runs positive, fun activities for students and assist in fostering supportive, caring school communities. These positive relationships help young people to face difficult issues and provide hope, connection, meaning and purpose.
The Chaplaincy service is available to everyone in the school community.
