The National School Chaplaincy and Student Welfare Program provides funding to schools to access the services of a school chaplain. This program aims to help school communities support the spiritual, social and emotional wellbeing of their students. Sattler has a part-time School Chaplain who is on campus on two days a week.
A Chaplain is a trained person who offers care and acceptance to all, regardless of race, creed, gender or cultural background. Chaplains listen, provide a safe environment for people to share their feelings, help people work through life issues, are confidential and caring and assist in times of crisis.
Sam Price is our chaplain at Sattler. We have seen positive benefits and support for students and families through the chaplaincy program in our school community.
